More than three decades after its humble beginning in 1975, SHPE-USC maintains a strong commitment to providing role models to the Hispanic community. We continue to promote engineering, science, and math at the pre-college level. We strive to make sure that students who choose to pursue these fields have all the necessary tools and resources to be successful. All this comes in the form of leadership and professional development workshops. Of course, our biggest opportunities are offered at our Regional Leadership Development Conference and the SHPE National Conference.
Each year, SHPE-USC endeavors to remain a prominent organization in the STEM fields within the Hispanic community as well as within the USC community. SHPE-USC hopes the passion to make a difference in the lives of our members is evident in the quality and success of the events and programs.
The success of SHPE-USC has grown due to the dedication of its members and executive board. Commitment is the key factor behind such SHPE-USC awards, namely: Viterbi Student Organization of the Year in 2006, SHPE National Blue Chip Chapter Award in 2006, Chapter of the Month Award for September and January of the 2009-2010 school year, the Latino Student Assembly Community Outreach Award in 2009, and the SHPE National Blue Chip Chapter Award in 2011 and 2012 and the Latino Student Assembly Organization of the Year Award in 2012. In addition, we are ranked #3 in SHPE National for Membership Growth out of 234 chapters.
