The Department of Computer Science provided support for a delegation of students to attend the National Society of Black Engineers’ (NSBE) 46th Annual Convention in August. The conference, held virtually this year, demonstrated NSBE’s commitment to working with academic partners in the United States to increase the country’s number of Black bachelor’s degree recipients in engineering to 10,000 annually by 2025.

NSBE reported that students were deeply moved by their experiences at this and other conferences, saying that the inclusion and empowerment promoted there was unmatched. Students were excited to create and expand pipelines to professional and academic success.

At Tufts, the Department of Computer Science and the School of Engineering recognize the crucial importance of addressing structural racism and fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in computer science broadly as well as in our classes, research spaces, and campus culture.
