    (BPRW) CORRECTING and REPLACING CAPTION National Society of Black Engineers and ExxonMobil Honor Collegiate Minority-Retention Programs in Engineering

    - Northwestern University, The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan receive 2013 Impact Award -

    (BLACK PR WIRE) – CORRECTION...by NSBE

    WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Please replace the caption with the accompanying corrected caption The release reads:

    NATIONAL SOCIETY OF BLACK ENGINEERS AND EXXONMOBIL HONOR COLLEGIATE MINORITY-RETENTION PROGRAMS IN ENGINEERING

    Northwestern University, The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan receive 2013 Impact Award The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and ExxonMobil recently honored three universities with the 2013 Impact Award for their efforts in retaining underrepresented minority students in engineering programs.

    Northwestern University, The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan were each awarded $10,000 from ExxonMobil and NSBE during an event held at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C. on April 17. Calvin A. Young, NSBE’s national chair, and Kenny Warren, vice president of engineering, ExxonMobil, presented the awards.

    “NSBE salutes these outstanding academic institutions for their success in keeping black, Latino and other underrepresented minority students in engineering,” Dr. Carl Mack, executive director of NSBE, said. “There is an urgent need for more skilled workers in science, technology, engineering and math fields; the United States cannot afford to continue losing two-thirds of these students to other majors, as it is doing now. These universities are among the few that not only understand the urgency of solving the retention problem in engineering, but are also creative and determined in coming up with solutions.”

    ExxonMobil and the NSBE established the Impact Award in 2011 to honor and recognize collegiate efforts to attract and retain minority students in engineering disciplines. Each program is recognized for its ability to be easily replicated at other universities nationwide through NSBE.

    “ExxonMobil and NSBE recognize the outstanding efforts of these universities in identifying, mentoring, retaining and graduating the next generation of talented engineers,” said Suzanne McCarron, general manager, public and government affairs, Exxon Mobil Corporation. “The need to encourage minority students in engineering disciplines is critical if U.S. employers hope to keep up with workforce demands.”

    According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. population is 16.3 percent Latino and 12.6 percent African American, but the two groups only represent 6.2 and 5 percent respectively of the engineering workforce. The Impact Award recipients were selected for their demonstrated, results-based progress in retaining underrepresented minority students in engineering-related programs. Northwestern University’s EXCEL program fosters a cultural community of support while reinforcing excellence in academics. Elements include study-skills development, mentoring, peer-to-peer engagement and exposure to a variety of engineering disciplines.

    At The Ohio State University, PREFACE, the Pre-Freshman and Cooperative Education program, offers a successful summer-enrichment and engineering-exposure experience designed to help entering freshmen transition smoothly from high school to the university’s engineering school. The University of Michigan developed the Michigan STEM Academy in its college of engineering to identify and support talented, diverse students interested in engineering fields. Through this academy, students have access to a summer-transition program, collaborative learning experiences, advising and academic coaching, study groups, research opportunities and mentoring.

    ExxonMobil’s partnership with NSBE dates back to 1989 and includes nearly $1 million in support of the organization’s mission.

    Past Impact Award recipients include Michigan State University, Purdue University, Virginia Tech, the University of Houston, the University of Maryland – College Park and the University of Texas at Austin. In 2012, the efforts of North Carolina A&T State University were recognized with an honorable-mention designation.

    About NSBE
    The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), with close to 29,000 members, is one of the largest student-governed organizations in the country. Founded in 1975, NSBE is comprised of nearly 400 college, pre-college, and technical-professional/alumni chapters in the United States and abroad. NSBE’s mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.

    (BPRW) U.S. Army Encourages Students to Pursue STEM Careers During 27th Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) STEM Global Competitiveness Conference


    (BLACK PR WIRE) — Alexandria, Va. (February 6, 2013) — The U.S. Army is sponsoring the 27th Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) STEM Global Competitiveness Conference, Feb. 7-9 in Washington D.C., as part of the Army’s ongoing commitment to develop highly-trained men and women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

    The BEYA conference attracts top-performing African-American high school and Historically Black College and University (HBCU) students and professionals in STEM. At the conference, the Army will showcase its education benefits and opportunities, as well as the multiple career paths in engineering available for officers, soldiers and civilians.

    U.S. Army
    The U.S. Army, and organizations like BEYA, have made it their goal to increase access to higher education, leadership development and career opportunities in the STEM fields. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce Economics and Statistics Administration, African-Americans account for only six percent of the 7.6 million U.S. STEM workforce. More than two-thirds of STEM workers have at least one college degree, making higher education a key success factor in an occupational field that is projected to grow by 17 percent through 2018.

    The U.S. Army is the most technologically advanced military force in the world, providing men and women with the training and real world experience to succeed. Army officers can select from 42 career fields with 271 specialties, which include information technology, engineering and medicine. To highlight this, the Army has launched a new advertising campaign, “A Mentality,” that aims to educate the community about what it means to be an Army officer and the opportunities offered. The campaign highlights the personal story of Maj. Myles B. Caggins III, a second-generation career Army officer who commissioned through the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program at Hampton University. To view Maj. Caggins’ story, as well as those of other Army officers, go to www.youtube.com/goarmy.

    The Army will highlight various career and education opportunities at the BEYA conference by hosting a panel on defensive solutions in cybersecurity moderated by U.S. Army Cyber Command representatives; discussing STEM scholarship opportunities through ROTC during the BEYA K-12 Technology Carnival; and will host an interactive booth at the STEM Career Fair.

    The BEYA organization will also recognize Army ROTC Cadet Brandon Van Dyke of Bowie State University during the BEYA Student Leadership and Scholarship Awards Dinner. Cadet Van Dyke was selected for recognition for demonstrating outstanding leadership and academic success in a STEM-related field.
