Creative Learnings from a Diverse Student Organization

The National Society of Black Engineers, Miami

The National Society of Black Engineers is one of the largest student-governed organizations based in the United States. NSBE was founded on Purdue University's campus in the 1970s when a small group of students called the "Chicago Six" took on the initiative to improve the recruitment and retention of black engineering students on campus. Now NSBE has become a powerhouse engineering organization on the high school, undergraduate, and professional levels. NSBE's mission is "to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community." NSBE offers its members leadership training, professional development activities, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more. The Miami University chapter is relatively new chapter that has been growing faster than anticipated. With close to 50 members, they host volunteering events such as A Walk for Education as well as sending members to the national convention where they gain networking and job opportunities. NSBE has become a welcoming community that serves as both an academic and personal support system for its members.
