Virginia-North Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation

About the Virginia-North Carolina Alliance

The Virginia-North Carolina Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation strives for diversification of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) workforce, with an emphasis on increasing the number of underrepresented minority students earning baccalaureate degrees and matriculating to graduate school. Each of the twelve partner institution programs offers individually tailored recruitment, retention, and enhancement activities to support students such as bridge programs, stipends, symposia, tutoring, mentoring, workshops, and research experiences.

One goal of the Virginia-North Carolina Alliance is diversification of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) workforce.

TNCC Students Embark on Field Research Experience

Nine Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) science students embarked on a research trip to conduct hands-on field and lab science. Students stayed in the dorm, spent time on barrier islands collecting marine organisms from multiple habitats, observed and examined live organisms, and interacted with scientists working at the lab. Also participating were Thomas Nelson project directors Jean Frank and Dr. Jennifer Martin as well as President Towuanna Porter Brannon. The trip took place April 15-16, 2022 at the Eastern Shore Lab of Virginia Institute of Marine Science, William & Mary in Wachapreague, VA.
