MI-LSAMP Central Staff

The Michigan Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (MI-LSAMP) includes 6 colleges and universities, with a site coordinator and site lead at each partner institution. Although we encourage you to contact your site coordinator for any immediate questions and concerns regarding the MI-LSAMP program at your institution, there is a central administrative team housed at the University of Michigan. Please contact our central admin staff for any questions or concerns that your site coordinator cannot respond to or for more information about MI-LSAMP. We look forward to serving you!
