Mission & Vision
Currently, the United States is facing a shortage of technical talent. Compared to international markets, the U.S. has fewer graduates in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. Additionally, our K -12 students test below their counterparts in math and science. If these trends continue, America will fall short of producing these STEM innovators needed to address the grand challenges of the 21st century.
Statistics state that Hispanics will be the majority population by 2042. Hispanic students need to be prepared to compete in the STEM fields that are projected to have the highest need for new hires. SHPE's mission is to empower the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.
Through our membership, programs, scholarships and corporate partnerships, SHPE will inspire the next generation of STEM innovators this country needs. Join us in our quest to expand STEM literacy so that Hispanics are the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers!
Mission: SHPE changes lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development.
Vision: SHPE's vision is a world where Hispanics are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
