8th Grade Students Participate in MiCUP Tutoring

MICUP/MI-LSAMP

The Michigan College and University Partnership (MICUP)/Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (MI-LSAMP) Transfer Transition Program is a collaborative effort between three Michigan community colleges (Delta College, Grand Rapids Community College, and Wayne County Community College District) and Michigan Tech.

The goals of the program are:

  • to encourage students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields;
  • to spark students’ interest in research; and
  • to significantly increase the transfer of underrepresented ethnic minority, first-generation, and economically disadvantaged students from community colleges to four-year institutions.

The MICUP/MI-LSAMP Transfer Transition Program began in 2000 as the MICUP Unlock Your Future Program. Michigan Tech received a five-year grant in 2006 and a six-year grant in 2011. Currently, Michigan Tech is partnered with MI-LSAMP to continue our shared goal of increasing the number of underrepresented minority and first-generation students in STEM and non-STEM fields.
