SECME: Science, Engineering, Communication, and Math Enrichment

To increase the pool of historically underrepresented and under-served students who will be prepared to enter and complete post-secondary studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); thus creating a diverse and globally competitive workforce.

SECME was established in 1975 as the Southeastern Consortium for Minorities in Engineering by the Engineering Deans at six Southeastern universities.
The organization’ s name was changed to SECME Inc.: Diversity in STEM Education to better represent the territories we serve today, which extend to schools, universities, science- and technology-based business and industry, and public and private agencies in 17 states (from New York to Arizona), the District of Columbia, and Grand Bahama.
Local SECME organizations unofficially use Science, Engineering, Communications, Math Enrichment to make the program more familiar and inviting to students and parents.  This also helps to promote that this is a STEM program.
National Office and administrative home is located in the College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in midtown Atlanta
