ABOUT NALA: National Association for LSAMP Alumni
In 2017, Paul Faronbi (Iowa State University, 2016) and Queenster Nartey (Grinnell College, 2016) founded the IINSPIRE LSAMP Alumni Committee (ILAC). The committee consists of alumni from across the IINSPIRE LSAMP Alliance with a mission to unite post-baccalaureate IINSPIRE students and facilitate successful undergraduate careers for current students. They expanded to form a full board in 2018 and revamped it in 2019. In December of 2019, Paul reached out to LSMRCE about partnering with other alumni groups. It was from there that the idea to connect all LSAMP Alumni was born, the LSAMP Alumni Group. LSAMP Alumni Group now consists of over 100 members across the United States and Puerto Rico. Members range from current graduate students, professors, industry professionals, and so much more!
