Our Executive Board 2007-2008 (and Founding Members)

                                Chair - Christian Ayeni

chrisI am a third year bioengineering student at the University of California, Merced. As one of the pioneering students I feel a sense of responsibility in the development of University of California, Merced. NSBE at the UC Merced allows me to fulfill this responsibility via peer mentoring, dissemination of professional development information, and promoting academic excellence. In doing these things as a general membership I believe that NSBE at UC Merced is fulfilling the NSBE National Mission: “To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers, who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community”
