COVID-19 pandemic presents unique challenges. Thank you for helping our under-resourced students.
Established in 1982, Maximizing Engineering Potential (MEP)—within the Center for Gender, Diversity & Student Excellence—aspires to be a premier center of excellence for preparing diverse communities of students for academic, professional, and leadership opportunities in a global society. MEP recruits and prepares historically under-represented minority, women, low-income, first-generation, veterans, and non-traditional students for the engineering workforce. MEP collaborates with and supports engineering cultural affinity organizations:
American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)
Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
Over 80% of students receive need-based aid—with an average financial aid package of $10,663. Your contribution will be used for “Bronco Bucks” (money deposited into the student's ID card). Funds are used to buy textbooks, meals, and school supplies.
