EDP supplements the program and leadership activities of a number of student societies that support diversity in the School of Engineering. Currently, the EDP supports:
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
The Society of Black Scientists and Engineers (SBSE), a chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)
The Stanford Society of Latino Engineers (SOLE), a chapter of SHPE-MAES and HENACC
These student societies are chapters of national engineering organizations that concentrate their activities on professional development, academic assistance, community involvement, and cultural responsibility in engineering, especially via internships and permanent career placements.
