Louis Stokes Midwest Center of Excellence (LSMCE) Conference 

October 2017

The Louis Stokes Midwest Center of Excellence (LSMCE) was created in 2012 to communicate best practices, tools, and information garnered from the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) consortium to a broader audience. LSMCE serves as a national hub of information for scholars to access data, models, and funding opportunities in broadening participation of underrepresented minority (URM) students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Additionally, the Center will begin assisting 28 Midwestern non-LSAMP schools with developing strategies to improve their URM students’ performance, persistence and success in STEM degree programs and provide opportunities for their faculty and students to participate in STEM activities including workshops/conferences, webinars and research internships.
