National Society of Black Engineers – University of Idaho
The National Society of Black Engineers is a student-managed, non-profit organization that is committed to recruiting, retaining, and motivating its membership to successfully complete a college education.
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) launched its student chapter at the University of Idaho in 2007. NSBE-UI is currently one of the most active student organizations on campus in which the members are dedicated towards “academic excellence, professional success and positive impact in the community”.
NSBE’s Objective is to:
Stimulate and develop student interest in the various engineering disciplines.
Increase the number of minority students studying engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Encourage members to seek advanced degrees in engineering or related fields and to obtain professional engineering registrations.
The members of NSBE-UI engage in inspiring the young generation from K-12 in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). NSBE-UI members go to a middle school in Spokane on the second Saturday of each month to demonstrate some science projects to the middle school kids. NSBE-UI outreach also reached out to the middle and high school kids of local areas such as Moscow (ID), Pullman (WA) and Lapwai (ID).
