Lawson State Community College Promotes Careers in STEM through 2-Pi STEM Program
The National Science Foundation’s Historically Black Colleges and University Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP) seeks to enhance the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at Historically Black Colleges and Universities as a means to broaden participation in the Nation's STEM workforce.
The 2-Pi STEM program provides support for the implementation of comprehensive institutional strategies to strengthen STEM teaching and learning in ways that improve access to and retention of underrepresented groups in STEM disciplines. 2-Pi STEM consist of three distinct programs designed to recruit and retain STEM majors, while enhancing their STEM college experience.
2-Pi STEM is comprised of three core programs, the STEM Scholars and Learning Community component, The Summer Enrichment Institute, and the STEM Bridge Pathways Program. Each program provide students the opportunity to explore STEM career paths.
Georgia-Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation
The overarching goal of the Georgia-Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (GA-AL LSAMP) is to increase the quantity and quality of underrepresented minority (URM) students who earn associate and baccalaureate degrees. The alliance is comprised of nine member institutions: Clark Atlanta University (lead institution) Atlanta Metropolitan College, Georgia State University, Morehouse College, Morris Brown College, Paine College, Spelman College, Lawson State Community College, and Drake State Technical College.
