Students present research at Louis Stokes Alliance event

Students present research at Louis Stokes Alliance event

May 08, 2023

Students from UA-PTC participated in this year’s Arkansas Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation.

Dr. Moluwa Matute, UA-PTC Chair of Physical and Natural Sciences, accompanied the students to ARK-LSAMP, a statewide collaborative alliance for eight Arkansas Institutions. The organization's primary goal is to increase the pool of BS, MS, and PhD degree graduates in STEM disciplines in Arkansas’ Workforce. The ARK-LSAMP Program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) with additional support from the Arkansas Economic Development Commission.

The primary focus of the two-year colleges in the ARK LSAMP program is transferring students to 4-year institutions to complete a BS degree each year. UA-PTC has two participating students headed to 4-year institutions in May and in the Fall of 2023.
