2020 National Society of Black Engineers

About The University of Oklahoma NSBE Chapter

Our MISSION is to increase the number of culturally responsible, black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.

We enVISION a black collegiate engineering community within the Gallogly College of Engineering where students connect socially, prioritize academics and are focused on professional excellence before graduation.

The NSBE OU chapter hosts many events, volunteer opportunities, social gatherings, and educational trips each year to help our students network with professionals and give back to their community.

Our Goal

To financially support NSBE OU students by raising $3,000 so that we can participate in the 46th Annual NSBE Convention.

About the Convention

The National Society of Black Engineers 46th Annual Convention (#NSBE46) will take place on March 25 – 29, 2020 in San Antonio, TX. The Annual Convention showcases black students and professionals who have a passion for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), who are high achievers in these fields and who are channeling their dedication to advance their communities and society at large. #NSBE46 will attract more than 14,000 aspiring and practicing engineers, educators, and representatives of more than 250 academic institutions, government agencies, corporations, and nonprofit organizations. The convention will feature high-profile speakers, panel discussions, dynamic workshops, networking sessions, community engagement events, technical and scientific competitions, hands-on engineering and science activities and the premier career fair geared toward African Americans in STEM.

Our Need

NSBE OU seeks $3,000 in funding to provide NSBE students with financial assistance to attend the 46th Annual Convention. The cost per student is approximately $350 but every dollar will help us reach our goal!
