Welcome (back) to BU and to another year of SHPE. Over this summer, the SHPE officers have been working hard to plan for this year and make it the best one yet! We’ve got a great group on the e-board, but we thrive on the enthusiasm and involvement of all of our members. More than ever before, we are calling out to all SHPE members to join us to achieve new heights.
It’s a great time to be part of the SHPE familia. On the national level, new leadership have set forth great goal for the organization and have exciting plans to move forward. Locally, the Boston professional chapter is planning wonderful career developing and networking events for the student chapters around Boston. At Boston University, we are lucky to be facing a year of tremendous potential for growth and improvement. Our ability to fulfill our potential as a chapter and as an organization begins with our members. We are at a defining moment in our chapter and need the support and continued enthusiasm of our members to move forward.
This year BU SHPE is all about building connections: both professionally and with the community. The community around us, on and off campus, is full of things to offer. One of our goals this year is to improve participation in our outreach program, led by Maria Zenzola, with the City on a Hill charter school in Roxbury. As we expand our reach to students- within and external to the Hispanic community, inside the College of Engineering and all STEM fields, undergraduate and graduate- we will be working to connect with other student groups at BU, other student SHPE chapters, professionals, our regional and national SHPE leadership, and our community.
Join us in our mission! Stay tuned for upcoming events and opportunities.
Thank you for your support, we look forward to welcoming you to our new-and-improved SHPE!
Mary Louise Fowler, BU BME 2011, President 2010-2011
