    Since 2009, Rutgers University – Newark (RU-N) has served as the lead institution in the Garden State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (GSLSAMP), during which time GSLSAMP has seen an 84% increase in Latinos/as graduating in STEM fields of study (defined as science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

    The success of the GSLSAMP program, led by Dr. Alec Gates has now been nationally recognized: Today GSLSAMP was named a “Bright Spot in Hispanic Education” by The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. The announcement was made by Alejandra Ceja, executive director of the Initiative, at the launch of National Hispanic Heritage Month and in honor of the Initiative’s 25th anniversary in Washington, D.C. “There has been notable progress in Hispanic educational achievement, and it is due to the efforts of these Bright Spots in Hispanic Education, programs and organizations working throughout the country to help Hispanic students reach their full potential," said Ceja.
