About CMSE

Established in 1981 as a unit within the School of Engineering, the Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering provides academic support services and outreach programs designed to recruit, retain, and graduate African American, Hispanic American, and Native American engineering students.

The Center has a warm and friendly staff working to create a supportive environment to help accomplish this goal. The staff provides retention, outreach, and recruitment activities for students in K-12, as well as graduate and undergraduate students enrolled at the A. James Clark School of Engineering.

Support and guidance is also given to the Black Engineers Society (NSBE), the campus chapter of the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), and the Student Community for Outreach, Retention, and Excellence (SCORE).

Our Mission

The Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering is committed to the recruitment, retention, development, and graduation of underrepresented minority pre-college, undergraduate and graduate students in engineering.
