The Black Engineering and Science Student Association (BESSA) is the University of California, Berkeley chapter for our parent organization the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). We are a student-run, non-profit organization that thrives on its members' support, success, and commitment. We diligently work to provide academic and social support not only to our engineering and science community but to the entire Black community. This organization is a strong believer in academic excellence, personal growth, and a commitment to minority communities in and out of the classroom.
