National Society of Black Engineers

MISSION

NSBE's mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professionals, who excel academically and positively impact the community. While also creating a culture of diversity and inclusion through STEM. 

 

VISION

“We envision a world which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color, and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers. In this world, Blacks exceed parity in entering engineering fields, earning degrees, and succeeding professionally”. All while exposing cadets to the many opportunities in STEM at West Point and as Future Army Officers.

 

Why NSBE at West Point?

Our cadet club strives to raise the interest of the West Point community in various aspects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and serves as a resource for cadets from historically underrepresented groups. As an active chapter since 1997 with a strong membership of over 90 cadets, our chapter’s mission is to increase the numbers of cadets from historically underrepresented groups who excel academically, impact the community and are strong leaders of character. Our chapter has three main initiatives: Excel Scholars & Tutoring Program, Engineering Expo Community Outreach, and Forum for Professional and Social Networking.
