Link to Orgsync:

MESA serves as a collaborative organization of several multicultural groups including (but not limited to) the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. MESA serves as a support group for students seeking an inclusive community of learning, scholarship, and service. We strive for cultural diversity, empowerment for U.S. and international students, and retention of minorities traditionally underrepresented in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Community outreach programs and leadership conferences are examples of MESA activities.
