STEM Student Groups at RIT
There are many active STEM focused student groups serving under-represented groups at RIT three of these inlude: the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE).
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.

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)
SHPE works to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community. SHPE changes lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.
