The University of Maryland's Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering (CMSE), the Black Engineers Society (BES), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), and the LSAMP STEM Community are hosting their 42nd Annual Student Recognition Celebration on April 16, 2023, at the Dorothy D. & Nicholas OREM Alumni Hall in the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center.

As a collective, we have forged an excellent reputation by consistently delivering outstanding students, alumni, events, and showmanship. We celebrate the talent, success, and incredible achievements of our CMSE students. This event showcases the best and brightest through the Student Recognition Celebration. It will be a great time to celebrate these engineering students' academic achievements and all the people that helped them along the way. We finally are once again opening this celebration to include families, friends, and others to commemorate the students’ accomplishments and share this celebratory experience. This is the first time we will be celebrating as one big TERP family in almost 3 years!
