STEM Student Groups
There are two active STEM focused student groups serving under-represented groups: the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) and the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
The AISES mission is to increase substantially the representation of American Indian and Alaskan Natives in engineering, science and other related technology disciplines. The AISES membership fee of eligible students (Students majoring in science, technology, engineering, or math fields.) is paid for by the Future Stewards Program at the student's request. AISES meets monthly and each year we send a large delegation of scholars to the AISES National Convention. RIT covers all expenses for those presenting papers or posters and club leadership who attend. Students have found the national conference an excellent opportunity to network and secure co-ops. National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
The NSBE organization is dedicated to the academic and professional success of African-American engineering students and professionals. NSBE offers its members leadership training, professional development, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more.
