Make a Difference in MEP
As a division of Engineering Student Services, the Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) is a retention program designed to provide equitable opportunities to students who have been historically underserved in the College of Engineering at Cal Poly. MEP leverages a strong support network to build a community and provide the necessary bridges for students' academic success.
MEP automatically adds the following student groups to our program every academic year upon admission to Cal Poly:
MEP also advises the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).

It's the absolute best. :)
