Houston, We Have a Problem
  • In 2006, Black students earned 4,891 bachelors
    degrees in engineering, roughly 6 of all
    engineering bachelors earned that year
  • In 2006, Black students earned only 3.3 of
    masters degrees in engineering
  • In 2004, Black students earned only 1.6 of
    doctoral degrees in engineering
  • By comparison, Blacks are 12.8 of the US
  • Something is very wrongway before the college
    levelespecially in Houston

  • How many NSBE Jr. students in Houston have met a
    NSBE Alumni member working in the career field
    they would like to pursue or a collegiate member
    pursuing the major they want to pursue?
  • How many NSBE Jr. students have met you?

  • Fault Detection, Isolation, and

A Faulty Model
  • Traditional NSBE model
  • One NSBE college/Alumni chapter adopts a NSBE
    Jr. chapter
  • Chapters PCI Chair acts as liaison to NSBE Jr.
  • Ambitious chapters may adopt more than one
    school using PCI committee members
  • Houston has two Alumni chapters and three
    collegiate chapters
  • At BEST, traditional model might cover 25-40 NSBE
    Jr. chapters across Houston metro area

A Faulty Model
  • Houston Pre-College Outreach is NOT at its best
  • Houston Space No PCI Chair
  • Regular contact with JSC NSBE Jr. member is
    chapter advisor (used to have contact with
    Hartman NSBE Jr.)
  • Houston Alumni Programs Chair doing double duty
    as Region 5 AE PCI Chair
  • HAE generally tries to have some contact with any
    NSBE Jr. chapter possible
  • University of Houston NSBE PCI Chair
  • Often tries to have contact with Booker T.
  • Rice University NSBE Status Unknown
  • Often tries to have contact with Booker T.
  • Texas Southern University NSBE Status Unknown
  • Only NSBE Jr. chapters to fully complete
    chartering requirements are JSC NSBE Jr. and
    South Houston Booker T. Washington is not
  • Roughly 2/3 of the chapters established since
    2003 are inactive

A Faulty Model
  • Model is grossly inadequate for Houston metro
  • 62 School Districts Across 8-County Houston Metro
  • 18 school districts in Harris county
  • 8 districts in Brazoria county
  • 4 districts in Chambers county
  • 7 districts in Liberty county
  • 5 districts in Ft. Bend county
  • 6 districts in Montgomery county
  • 9 districts in Galveston county
  • 5 districts in Waller county
  • Plus additional private schools
  • Even devoting 100 of chapter memberships across
    all collegiate/Alumni chapters cannot address
    this system
  • Study smarter, not harder

A New NSBE Jr. Paradigm
  • Incorporate GYC Leadership Model to Houston NSBE
    Jr. Operations

Houston NSBE Jr.
  • Create a Houston Junior Executive Board (HJEB)
  • Metro area leadership structure lies between the
    Region and the individual chapter establishes
    the metro area as a functional NSBE Jr. entity
  • Coordinating body (i.e. an umbrella, or
    super-chapter) to organize multi-chapter NSBE Jr.
    activity within the Houston metro area
  • Promotes the development of leadership qualities,
    career preparation, and academic excellence
  • Engages NSBE Jr. students to lead NSBE Jr.
  • Individual NSBE Jr. chapters will maintain full
    authority over chapter-specific events
  • HJEB will pool resources and maximize
    opportunities for all NSBE Jr. students

HJEB Operations
  • Board members are advised by Alumni Collegiate
    PCI volunteers
  • Board members recruit other NSBE Jr. students to
    serve as their assistants
  • HJEB helps local NSBE Jr. chapters with
    chartering, membership recruiting, and is
    platform for joint activity
  • HJEB is also point of contact for any collegiate
    or Alumni chapters seeking to provide a citywide
    activity for NSBE Jr. students (e.g. company or
    college tour event)
  • HJEB assumes ownership of NSBE Jr. programs
  • HJEB is primary interface to RJEB and REB/RAEB
    PCI Chairs for PCI operations in the metro area

HJEB Leadership LevelsNSBE Jr. at the citywide
  • Leadership Ladder just like GYC
  • Executive Board Member
  • Program Chairpersons
  • Major Staff
  • Minor Staff
  • Member
  • Volunteer

HJEB Leadership LevelsNSBE Jr. at the citywide
  • Program Classification
  • Class A Program (like a GYC Class A Project)
  • Large, highly complex program run entirely by
    NSBE Jr. students
  • Restrict to high school juniors and seniors with
    1 year NSBE Jr. experience and extensive
    leadership training (e.g. Chair of a B Program or
    Major Staff of an A Program)
  • Class B Program (like a GYC Class B Project)
  • Medium, moderately complex program
  • Often programs run entirely by NSBE Jr. students
    or partnerships
  • Should require 1 year NSBE Jr. experience and
    significant leadership training to hold office
    (e.g. Major Staff of an A or B Program or Chair
    of a C Program) open to all high school students

HJEB Leadership LevelsNSBE Jr. at the citywide
  • Program Classification
  • Class C Program (like a GYC Class C Project)
  • Small, least complicated program
  • Often manpower programs involving NSBE Jr.
    students showing up to volunteer at another
    organizations event
  • Recommend setting limited experience requirements
    to hold office but should be a high school
  • Program Chairs are elected throughout the year
    based on the timeline required for their specific
  • Program Chairs serve as Executive Board members
    from the day of their election through their
    post-event Evaluation meeting

HJEB Leadership
  • Executive Board similar in basic concept to GYC
    Executive Board, but mapped to NSBE zone
  • District Directors responsible for maintaining
    connection with schools
  • School Reps assist as Major Staff (one per
  • Adapt GYCs model of summer, fall, and spring
    recruiting drives
  • Incorporate citywide and/or district-wide
    meetings (equivalent to GYC Full Council
    meetings) as appropriate

HJEB Leadership
  • Initial Projects for first year
  • Class A
  • No Class A projects in year one (or two?)
  • Class B
  • TMAL Local Competition
  • NSBE Jr. Tutoring (or other 6-12 academic
  • Company Tours
  • Class C
  • TBD (to be selected by HJEB but should be a fun
    academic science/math/engineering service to 3-5
  • TBD (to be selected by HJEB but should be a fun
    academic science/math/engineering service to 6-8
  • TBD (to be selected by HJEB but should be a
    strictly fun event

Houston Junior Executive BoardAdvisor Assignments
  • Houston Space, Houston Alumni, Rice, TSU, and UH
    each responsible for contributing 3-5 PCI
    volunteers to advise Houston NSBE Jr.
  • Functionally similar role to GYCs adult support
  • PCI Committees no longer responsible for
    individual NSBE Jr. chapters (function absorbed
    by HJEB District Directors)
  • Each advisor responsible for one board member
  • Some additional advisors may be tasked with
    logistical assistance to HJEB
  • When Class A projects added, may also need
    advisors for Class A Major Staff

Houston Junior Executive BoardAdvisor Interaction
  • HJEB officers will meet with their advisors on a
    weekly basis more often when needed due to
    specific events
  • Meetings may be via phone, web chat, or in person
  • NSBE Jr. chapter advisors continue in current
  • Not responsible for HJEB advisor duties, but are
    encouraged to attend HJEB meetings/functions
  • Parent/chaperone support needed for HJEB officers
    and assistants

Executive Board Workshop
  • Held bi-annually (summer and winter) to develop
    and evaluate HJEB plans
  • Similar to GYCs Executive Board Workshops
  • Summer EBW is longer than Winter EBW
  • Summer EBW orients the new board, evaluates the
    organization, and sets agenda for the year
  • Winter EBW is a mid-course correction
  • Both are out of town retreat activities
  • Advisors needed to attend both EBWs

Open Issue Meeting Space
  • HJEB needs an office facility (central or
  • Initially can work via conference calls, host
    schools, university campuses, but need an office
  • Lockable facility
  • Dedicated office desks and computers for HJEB
  • Shared office desks and computers for Program
  • Meeting Room
  • Dedicated office area and computers for advisors
  • Office work space for program committees/major
  • Storage for accumulated property and paperwork
  • Free parking and anytime building access
  • First year task will be to seek office space with
    local engineering companies or other businesses
  • Downtown petroleum companies are ideal prospects
