National Society of Black Engineers

Today, more than ever, advancement of the engineering profession depends on the work of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). NSBE is committed to widening the pool of engineering talent from Black communities around the world. In the United States, where African Americans and other people of color will soon outnumber other groups in the workforce, NSBE is expanding the pipeline to engineering careers from third grade through graduate school. The tools used to accomplish this expansion are NSBE’s programs and activities, which are designed to nurture Black students’ and professionals’ interest and aptitude in engineering, expand their professional horizons and lead the nation to greater economic prosperity fueled by innovation. All engineers and all Americans benefit from NSBE’s dedication to its mission: to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community. Through its 350 pre-collegiate, collegiate and professional chapters, NSBE trains its 31,000 members around the globe in the essential skills for their professional lives. Among those skills are leadership, which NSBE members learn by taking on ever-increasing responsibility in the Society’s governance. All major decisions within NSBE are deliberated and made by college students, who are elected or appointed by their peers and supported by a professional World Headquarters staff.

NCAR | UCAR

Since 1960, UCAR—the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research—has served as a national hub for research, education, and advanced technology development from the atmospheric and related Earth sciences. On behalf of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the university community, UCAR manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the UCAR Community Programs (UCP).

NCAR is a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC), conducting a wide range of weather, climate, and solar science and related applications research. At the heart of this work is improving predictions about our atmosphere— how it behaves from moment to moment, day to day, and decade to decade, and the risks and opportunities associated with these changes. Each year, hundreds of people from universities, labs, and the weather enterprise collaborate with NCAR staff, and rely on NCAR resources, in order to carry out vital research and applications.

UCP provides innovative services to support education and research in the atmospheric and related sciences. UCP trains new and experienced weather forecasters;  brings real-time data and software into university classrooms; develops K-12 STEM education programs and resources; manages complex scientific field projects; and supports satellite-based Earth and atmospheric monitoring.
