Eta Phi Beta Sorority gives back

For 75 years, Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has provided services to improve the quality of life for individuals in many communities throughout the United States of America and the U.S. Virgin Islands. One of our signature initiatives is to assist with programs designated for improving the wellbeing of the “Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled Citizens.”

During the 25th Biennial Southeastern Regional Conference, hosted by Alpha Omicron Chapter, Delray Beach, Fla., (July 27-30, 2017) at the Boca Marriott at Boca Center, Shani Simpson, Advancement Associate with “The Arc of Palm Beach County” was presented with a monetary donation to assist them in improving the lives of children and adults with  disabilities.

#Not For Ourselves, But For Others

The NSF RISE award is a research infrastructure award targeted at building innovative research opportunities for graduate students. The NSF-RISE award means having the opportunity to establish at Florida A&M a research program in dimensional printing, one of the most promising technologies of the future, while at the same time developing a system to recruit and train underrepresented students to conduct that research and enter doctoral programs in science and engineering.

“The NSF-RISE award provides us a great attractor to encourage students at FAMU to follow interesting careers being offered in Engineering involving the application of advanced manufacturing,” added Dickens.
