Clark School Earns Impact Award for Work with Minorities
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and ExxonMobil honored the Clark School with a 2012 Impact Award for its efforts in retaining underrepresented minority students in engineering programs.
The Clark School, along with fellow honorees Michigan State University and the University of Houston, each received $10,000 from ExxonMobil and NSBE.
The Clark School and its Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering was cited for its Bridge Program, which enrolls freshmen in coursework before their first semester in order to increase the quantity and quality of students receiving baccalaureate degrees in science and engineering. Created in 1984, the Bridge Program is a four-year retention program that includes leadership opportunities, study abroad, research, career development and graduate school preparation. The Bridge Program is a component of the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program, which is funded by the National Science Foundation.
