The five African American Deans of Engineering Colleges in the US- in one room! Amazing! They were encouraging and shared their stories with the next generation of Black engineering students. In all the many years that I was an engineering student, none of my instructing faculty looked like me. I could only imagine such things. This generation does not have to imagine- today they saw themselves in power. How far we've come in just a generation. I look forward to the accomplishments of the future. Thank you, Deans Collins (Cornell), Washington (UC Irvine), Yeboah (FSU), May (GIT) and Pines (UMd). Thank You NSBE!

These are Deans at majority institutions. With all due respect, I must also say that there have been excellent Deans of Engineering at our HBCUs paving the way for many years now.
