National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)

Who we are:

We are the Johns Hopkins University Chapter of NSBE, the National Society of Black Engineers. Our Chapter name is H.O.M.E.S (Hopkins Organization for Minorities in Engineering and Science). We are a student run organization committed to the recruitment, retention, and successful graduation of Blacks and other minorities in engineering and other related technical and scientific fields. NSBE also acts as a vehicle to promote unity, emphasize effective leadership, and provide an organizational support network. The mission of this society is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. We want to put special emphases on minorities because we want to reach everyone. Anyone can join NSBE.

What we do:

• Attend NSBE’s phenomenal conferences, where we get the chance to network with students from around the country, land internships from top companies and institutions, win prizes and scholarships, and much, much more.

• Host workshops to help students polish their resumes, learn how to effectively manage their money, and tackle other related responsibilities. Most programs are sponsored by companies.

• Sponsor and coordinate programs to help both the members as well as others in the community, including Engineering Day where we invite high school and junior high students to a day full of interesting fun-filled activities that get them interested in Engineering, S.I.F.E. (Science is for

Everyone) where we help elementary and middle school students with math and science concepts at a local church, and our Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program at Milford Mill High School.

• Last but not least, we host game nights and social gatherings to offer a diversion or two from your studies!
