General Body Meetings

NSBE hosts 4-5 meetings a quarter that promote the recruitment and retention of UC Santa Barbara's Black scientists.

Academic and Professional Development: employer information sessions, resume reviews and advanced LinkedIn presentations

Facilitate Community-Building: alumni panels, leadership workshops, networking activities, self-care days and study jams

Spread Cultural Awareness: group Multicultural Center events, charity fundraisers and co-hosting activities with Black campus orgs

Professional Development

NSBE connects Black engineers with the academic, professional, and developmental resources to succeed in their field. We attend national NSBE conferences, link STEM students with industry and academic opportunities, and facilitate on-campus workshops. Every spring break, our chapter attends NSBE's week-long Annual Convention. Here, members can connect with other engineers across the country, learn tips about applying for graduate school, and can even be recruited for jobs or internships.

Community

Connections are important, especially as a minority in academia and STEM industries. NSBE's close-knit family builds strong relationships among UCSB students, campus staff, mentors, and recruiters. NSBE coordinates with our sister organizations to familiarize college-bound minority students with the exciting side of secondary education and encourage them to pursue STEM careers. We plan to develop more high school outreach throughout the year.
