The College Outreach Committee leads collaborative efforts between SAME and academia to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges and supports Post’s efforts to mentor and develop future STEM professionals at the collegiate-level. The Committee serves as a bridge between academia, Posts, government (military and civilian), and the private sector.

The Committee provides guidance to the network of student chapters across the Society, promotes internship opportunities from SAME sustaining members, and will establish a new engineering competition for students designed to address the nation’s grand challenges.


The SAME College Outreach Committee strives to organize programs and present opportunities to future military and civilian members of A/E/C professions 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 A/E/C community of practice.

Student Chapters

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.

Can't find a SAME Student Chapter? Take lead and start one! Find relevant information in Quick Links regarding how to start a Student Chapter in your local school or university. Students interested in starting a Student Chapter should contact the nearest SAME Post and ask for a mentor to assist them. Questions?  Contact: College Outreach Committee Chair, Seth Lorimer.

Post Mentoring

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! Find out more here!
