  • Leading National Diversity-Serving Organizations Awarded $2.9 Million National Science Foundation Grant

    In an effort to increase the diversity of engineering faculty, the National Science Foundation awarded $2.9 Million to the following leading national engineering diversity organizations: Great Minds in STEM (GMiS), American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), MAES: Latinos in Science and Engineering , National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), SACNAS: Advancing Chicanos/Hispanics & Native Americans in Science, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and Society of Women Engineers (SWE). This collaborative research project, titled ASSIST: Strengthening Engineering Faculty through Diversity Serving Professional Organization Engagement, is a historic first step toward long-term collaboration between the organizations. The establishment of this collaborative infrastructure between these organizations will result in the design, implementation and evaluation of a model for effectively increasing the number of underrepresented engineering faculty across all institutional types.

    NSBE Launches Campaign to Graduate 10,000 Black Engineers

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Only 19 percent of black 4th graders in the U.S. and 13 percent of the nation’s black 8th graders were proficient in math in 2015, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress. Only 5.5 percent of black 8th graders in the U.S. in 2005 completed calculus five years later, and a mere 1.1 percent of the nation’s black college freshmen enrolled in engineering programs in 2010, according to a recent analysis conducted by the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). And then there’s this distressing fact from the American Society for Engineering Education: the percentage of African Americans among U.S. engineering bachelor’s degree recipients has been declining for more than a decade and was only 3.5 percent in 2014.
