The National Society of Black Engineers Greater Philadelphia Professionals Chapter

The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) association owned and managed by its members. NSBE offers its members professional development, leadership training, mentoring opportunities, and community service and outreach programs. The organization is dedicated to the success of African American engineering students and professionals. The organization's mission is to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.

The Greater Philadelphia Professionals Chapter (GPC) was chartered in February 1989. Since its inception, GPC has developed annual programs, which support the minority and professional communities in the Philadelphia area. The GPC operates in Region 2 and has close ties to Region 1. The chapter also provides a variety of technical and professional seminars; tutoring programs for Philadelphia area schools, food and clothing to homeless families, and scholarships to college students pursuing engineering and science related degrees. Currently, the chapter has an outreach network of over 250 engineers, scientists and technical professionals in the area. GPC supports and works closely with the 10 collegiate chapters of the Danger Zone and two NSBE Jr. chapters in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
