Wisconsin Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (WiscAMP) is an alliance of 18 colleges and universities across the state of Wisconsin. Funded by the National Science Foundation (Award #1911284), WiscAMP activities at all Alliance institutions are training a diverse STEM workforce for Wisconsin and the world.

WiscAMP Alliance institutions collectively work to increase the number of underrepresented minority students who:

  • Complete their baccalaureate degrees in STEM disciplines
  • Pursue graduate degrees in STEM
  • Persist in STEM career pathways

Wisconsin Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (WiscAMP) acknowledges that the University of Wisconsin–Madison occupies ancestral Ho-Chunk land, a place their nation has called Teejop (day-JOPE) since time immemorial. In an 1832 treaty, the Ho-Chunk were forced to cede this territory. Decades of ethnic cleansing followed when both the federal and state government repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, sought to forcibly remove the Ho-Chunk from Wisconsin. This history of colonization informs our shared future of collaboration and innovation. Today, UW–Madison and WiscAMP respects the inherent sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation, along with the eleven other First Nations of Wisconsin.
