The Oklahoma Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (OK-LSAMP) Program. OK-LSAMP is a consortium of 12 Oklahoma colleges and universities working together to develop programs aimed at increasing the number of students from under-represented populations who receive degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. 


The OK-LSAMP Research Alliance has three goals: 

  1. To generate and broadly disseminate new knowledge about the ways OK-LSAMP activities increase diverse participation in STEM fields
  2. To collaborate in research to practice, practice to research efforts related to career learning that support OK-LSAMP undergraduate and graduate URM enrollment goals
  3. To advance current research about Native Americans’ career thinking and decisions to pursue advanced degrees



The Research Alliance supports scholars and scholarship around the theme of STEM career learning and culturally responsive programming and evaluation in higher education in Oklahoma. Native Americans compromise the largest alliance population of the OK-LSAMP (35% in 2016-2017). In addition to research about OK-LSAMP programs, this research alliance presents a unique opportunity for research that provides a more nuanced account of Native Americans’ perspectives, experiences, and career thinking related to STEM degrees (Page-Reeves, et al., 2017).
