Particular emphasis is placed in support of groups that historically have been underrepresented in STEM disciplines: African-Americans, Alaskan Natives, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders.

The LSAMP program at the University at Buffalo is part of SUNY LSAMP, a statewide alliance of the four university centers and smaller colleges within the geographical area of each university center. The SUNY LSAMP program was first funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1996 and has enjoyed continued support from NSF and each university partner.
LSAMP was named in honor of former congressman, Louis Stokes, (February 23, 1925 – August 18, 2015) who spent his life serving and defending those in need. He was an attorney who specialized in civil rights cases and later, the first black congressman elected in the state of Ohio. He served 15 terms in the United States House of Representatives – representing the east side of Cleveland.
