We pride ourselves in not only being able to improve ourselves in a professional, academic, and innovatice way, but in our ability to give back to the community through outreach. Overall, we have proved that we can prepare members for the real world, outside of their undergraduate career, whether it be in graduate school, the industry, or anything else.

SHPE's mission is to change lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.

SHPE's vision is a world where Hispanics are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers.

SHPE @ UCR strives to serve professional and academic development events through resume workshops, career-building presentations, and guest speakers from the industry, graduate school, and more. We provide resources such as the MentorSHPE program, to not only help improve underclassmen's experience, but to solidify the bond and create a professional network among our members. In addition, we host our very own Noche de Ciencias, or 'Science Night', to provide an opportunity to educate parents of middle and high school students about college education.
