Hello everyone it’s me again! Today I want to talk to you about SASE. SASE stands for Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers. Me and my friends are currently planning to start a SASE collegiate chapter at Lehigh, and hopefully it’ll be up and running before the the Club Fair in the fall semester. We are working on registering our school with the national chapter and get it to be a Lehigh senate-recognized club. I will take you through some general information about what SASE is, and how we are looking to impact the Lehigh community.
First of all, SASE is the first and only organization of Asian scientists and engineer. We have collegiate and professional chapters nationwide. Our mission statement is to prepare Asian heritage scientist and engineers for success in the global business world, also to celebrate diversity on campuses and in the workplace. Last but not least, to provide opportunities for members to make contributions to their local communities. It is great for providing professional development, networking, and leadership opportunities. Asians as well as all of us have to potential to make an impact on the world. However, not all of us are given the opportunity to showcase ourselves or as good at expressing ourselves to the employers. Therefore, it is our goal is to help our members to live to their full potential.
With the growing population of Asians at Lehigh, we think having a SASE collegiate chapter would really be a good idea. Students will have greater access to corporations, jobs, internships, and industry leaders, as well as networking, social and leadership opportunities. Lehigh SASE will really benefit the students who are struggling to build a resume or finding the internship. Although Lehigh already has many career workshop programs, Lehigh SASE will help students with all ethnic background, with a focus on students of Asian heritage.
We are going to have our first meeting to make plans and discuss responsibilities. There’s a lot of people we have to contact to help us set it up. For example, we need to speak to a faculty adivisor who is committed to SASE. Also the SASE CPM and Regional Manager. Things are going for us and hopefully Lehigh SASE will be up soon! Below is video briefing SASE; it’s actually hilarious, enjoy!
