The SAME College Outreach Committee strives to organize programs and present opportunities to future members of the military engineering community that will foster networking within the professional community, build leadership skills and provide job opportunities to recent graduates. Additionally, students with an active membership within SAME have at their disposal a wealth of knowledge and experiences from professionals throughout the military engineering enterprise that is simply not available by other means. Check us out on Facebook!
The College Outreach Committee assists SAME Posts in mentoring and building professional relationships between Post members and students majoring in engineering and related programs at local colleges and universities, and introducing students to job opportunities in military engineering.
A Note from the Committee Chair:
To our Student Members:
First and foremost I want to commend you on your decision to participate in SAME. Our organization is rich with resources and opportunities to strengthen your career before it even begins. As a student member, you can participate in our annual meetings and workshops, which serve as a creative think tank for young professionals. These events include a mixture of networking, professional development and leadership training that will be beneficial throughout your career.
I have 6 specific goals that I want to make a priority for this academic year, and am looking for creative methods that can return positive results; they are as follows:
I look forward to hearing about what has worked for your Chapter and what ideas you have for future events.
Student Chapters promote the goals and objectives of SAME, and encourage the advancement of careers in architecture, engineering and construction by connecting college students with professionals in these fields.
SAME College Program Update Newsletter
The SAME Student Council serves as a forum for SAME Student Members to interface with the College Outreach Committee in order to provide insight on student issues, and to allow students to network with each other and share ideas about Student Chapters and mentoring programs.
The College Outreach Committee is currently soliciting nominations for Student Council Members and for Student Council leadership positions. Each SAME Post is requested to nominate one student member to the Council. You DO NOT have to have a Student Chapter to nominate a student from your Post. All that is required for the nomination is a brief bio for the student and their contact information. Students wishing to be considered for one of the Council Officer positions should submit a short letter that outlines their leadership experience and past involvement with the society.
Mentoring is one of SAME's most important goals, and toward that end Posts are encouraged to develop College Outreach plans to involve local college and university students and encourage their pursuit of careers in the A/E/C field. Remember, the students you mentor today will be the leaders of tomorrow!
Posts can work with students toward this goal by:
Recognition is one of the key components in engaging young leaders in the Society. To that end, the Society created two awards that offer Posts a way to recognize the leadership and involvement of college and university students:
Nominations for these annual awards, with supporting materials, are due to SAME HQ no later than January 31st of each year.
