The Path Forward: The Campaign for CMSE is an ambitious plan to amplify CMSE's impact, secure our future, and advance our mission towards increasing the number of underrepresented minority students in engineering studies and careers.
To meet the challenges that lie ahead, CMSE must grow its capacity to recruit, retain, advise and mentor underrepresented students. And we need you to join us.
Together, we will ensure that CMSE can support, guide, and mentor underrepresented students for generations to come.
