The GEM Affinity Group is a community of graduate students who are recipients of the GEM Fellowship. In addition to connecting through programming offered by The National GEM Consortium, these students participate in community building, mentorship, and professional development sessions.
The group holds an annual welcome gathering, as well as additional events throughout the year. To get details on our events, visit the College of Engineering event calendar.
In addition, the college supports several related organizations:
- National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
- Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)
- Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
GEM is a network of leading corporations, government laboratories, top universities, and top research institutions that enables qualified students from underrepresented communities to pursue graduate (master’s and doctoral) education in applied science and engineering.
