LA-STEM was founded in 2003 with support from the National Science Foundation, the Louisiana Board of Regents, and Research Corporation. Our goal is to promote diversity within the STEM student body by bringing together students with unique backgrounds and experiences.

Led by Vice Chancellor Isiah M. Warner, the program focuses on mentoring, education, and research as a way to achieve this goal and support student success.


"The future of science in America depends on increasing the number of students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), particularly those currently underrpresented in the sciences."
