Join the Community Improvement Initiative (CII), a dynamic partnership with CE Corps that empowers NSBE members to harness their technical and professional skills for real change. Through CII, members collaborate with communities to engineer solutions for pressing needs that lack funding. By tackling projects in lower-income areas, we’re not only enhancing living conditions but also inspiring the next generation in STEM. Under the TORCH program, we’re committed to fostering compassion and nurturing future leaders.

If you’re eager to volunteer or know a community in need, contact

Black Excellence Engineered

We envision a world in which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color, and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers. In this world, Blacks exceed parity in entering engineering fields, earning degrees, and succeeding professionally.
