NSBE National Archives
In 1975 the National Society of Black Engineers which started as the Society of Black Engineers at Purdue University was formed. Today there are hundreds of thousands of children, collegiate students, professionals and communities that have been positively impacted by the movements of those dynamic young leaders and their advisors Arthur Bond and Saundra Taylor. This is the origin story.
Launching in April 2022
Through a detailed and meticulously reviewed process, the archive team will present historical documents, digital/analog media and images that tell the story of the origins of the National Society of Black Engineers. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please feel free to donate here. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
