MEP sponsors and advises in conjunction with the College of Engineering and Associated Students Inc. three student organizations: the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, the National Society of Black Engineers ( NSBE) and Society of Hispanics in Science and Engineering (SHSE) . In addition, MEP works actively with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).
Each of these clubs represents the diversity and cultural interests and issues of their students and serves to enhance the recruitment and retention of their underrepresented populations in engineering.
NSBE's mission is "to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community."
SHSE facilitates the programming of activities for the enrichment of the social, cultural, and educational aspects of university life. SHSE provides the development and training of mature and responsible leaders and instills within its members professional skills and attitudes. SHSE provides outreach programs for the improvement of the community as well as the promotion of higher education to local schools. SHSE was awarded Chapter of the Year at the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers National Conference in Fall 2007. SHSE received the Regional Chapter of the Year Award, as well.
The mission of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) is to substantially increase the representation of American Indians and Alaskan Natives in engineering, science, and other related technology disciplines. Since 1977, AISES has worked to substantially increase American Indian and Alaska Native representation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields — as students, professionals, mentors, and leaders.
SWE’s mission is to “Stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity.”
