SCU NSBE Voted Best Small Chapter
SCU's National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) student organization was named their region's Best Small Chapter at the 2018 NSBE National Convention! Chapter President Uche Agwu reports that SCU members attended the NSBE convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, March 21-25, where they joined more than 10,000 current and future engineers for professional and leadership development, technical training, networking, and career opportunities.
While the national convention is an annual highlight, here on campus throughout the year SCU's NSBE chapter fosters an environment of academic success, camaraderie, and professionalism to motivate its members to reach their career and educational goals. The group hosts weekly study halls, mentoring opportunities for underclass students, and a “Greatness Recognizes Greatness” series where black STEM professionals are recognized at each bi-weekly general meeting.
Beyond nurturing their own aspirations, reaching out to the engineers of tomorrow is a passion of SCU NSBE members. Each May they hold engineering workshops on campus to give over 100 middle school students the opportunity to practice different engineering principles.
"It was such an honor to be selected as the Region's Best Small Chapter," said Agwu. "We stand on the shoulders of chapter members who came before us. The SCU NSBE chapter has done great work with aiding our members and setting the foundation for future black engineers. As a chapter, we will continue to strive toward greatness and hold NSBE’s mission of advancing the success of black students and engineers at the core of everything we do."
