In accordance with the Commitment of the National Organization, the student cahpter aspires: To serve and empower the Hispanic engineering community; to promote academic excellence, professional and personal development, leadership, and service.
The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.
At the University of Michigan, SHPE has continued to show support for the Hispanic community by providing resources to assist them during their college career. Such resources include workshops and general body meetings, where various companies speak about career opportunities, provide resume and interviewing skills workshops, and provide students with a better understanding of what life could be like after graduation.
We will fulfill our mission by increasing educationa opportunities, promoting professional and personal growth, carrying out our social responsibility to be involved in education, business and government issues enhacing pride within our organization, and reinforcing our reputation as a vital Hispanic organization.
We are brought together by heritage, social responsibility, and a desire to improve the lives of all people through the use of science and technology. We value excellence in education, professional pursuits, and leadership. We obtain excellence through integrity, empowerment, achievement, diversity, and continuous self-improvement.
