Welcome (back) to BU and to another year of SHPE. Since last May, 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 as 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 has begun redefining itself and promises to make great progress as a chapter, especially as it strives to build stronger relationships with the local student chapters. 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. The community around us, on and off campus, is full of things to offer. 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!
Clara De Paolis, BU SHPE President 2009-2010
