The Indiana Tech chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) was chartered in 2005. Since then, the organization has had a steady presence on campus in order to fulfill the NSBE mission statement, which is “to increase the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.” For more information on the national organization, its mission and purpose, please see

The Indiana Tech Chapter hosts an annual fundraising banquet every February in order to raise funds for the NSBE scholarship, as well as funds to support the students as they travel to their regional and national conferences. The 2022 NSBE Annual Fundraising Banquet will host special guest Dr. Whitney Gaskins.

Dr. Gaskins is the assistant dean of inclusive excellence and community engagement in the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science. She founded and operates a non-profit agency in Cincinnati, dedicated to educating and empowering the African American community. She was named the K12 Champion by the National Association of Multicultural Engineering Program Advocates in 2017 and earned the Janice A. Lumpkin Educator of the Year Golden Torch Award in 2015.
