Institutional and faculty support as well as collaborative relationships and student services distinguish the CAMP program at our nine UC general campuses. The program facilitates collaboration among faculty, program staff and students, contributing to measurable impact and outcomes.
The California LSAMP supports a variety of recruitment and retention activities throughout the B.S. degree pathway, including the following best practices shared by all partners:
Lower Division
Retention and Development
  • Newly admitted student/parent open house and orientation
  • Academic year workshops, tutorials, and study sessions
  • Science writing through critical thinking: analysis and technical writing
  • Attendance at symposia and travel to regional and national conferences
  • Social integration into the campus STEM community
  • Introduction to the culture of the research laboratory
Upper Division
Opportunities and Graduate Outreach
  • Faculty mentoring and laboratory research, with financial support
  • Leadership in student chapters of professional organizations (e.g. SACNAS)
  • Development of a poster or oral presentation
  • GRE test preparation and graduate admissions process
  • Academic and career counseling and exposure to STEM career options
