The Center for Diversity & Inclusion supports and partners with the following student organizations to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion within the College of Engineering. Make sure you reach out directly to these groups if you’re interested in joining them!
Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
Society of Women Engineers was founded as a means to advance women in the field of engineering. The goal of our organization is to present engineering as a desirable career for women through outreach programs, networking opportunities, scholarships, and training programs. We accomplish this through outreach activities put on by the society and individual sections, webinars that help encourage professional and personal development, as well as conferences. As a section, we have perpetuated the Society’s goal to present engineering as a desirable field through our outreach, community service activities, and professional development activities with our local professional section. We encourage anyone and everyone to come attend our meetings and events!
SWE leads a mentorship program for first-year women in engineering called SWEsters. Students get paired up with upperclassmen mentors to help transition into the College of Engineering, and daily life at OSU.
Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS)
SACNAS is an inclusive organization dedicated to fostering the success of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans, from college students to professionals, in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in STEM. Our vision is true diversity, meaning the field (including leadership positions) reflects the demographics of the population.
Phi Sigma Rho
Phi Sigma Rho is a social sorority for women in engineering and technology. We strive to maintain academic excellence and support personal achievement, while providing a social balance for all of our members. Phi Sigma Rho is incredibly important to it's members because of the strong support system it fosters to allow women to excel in engineering and technology.
Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)
National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
Association of Computing Machinery, Women’s Chapter
Engineering Student Council (ESC)
The Engineering Student Council supports College of Engineering students by connecting them to campus and COE resources, hosting social and professional development events, advocating for diversity & inclusion in student relations, supporting 50+ engineering student organizations through funding, collaboration, and more.
