Mission statement

The California Gamma chapter of Tau Beta Pi at Stanford University serves the Stanford community by acting as a representative entity for academic excellence, leadership, and continued service. Tutoring services and office hours, conducted regularly at the Huang Engineering Center, encourage peer performance in science, mathematics and engineering. The annual TBP initiation process for each class of new members involves substantial service work. Members also help select the recipient of the Tau Beta Pi Teaching Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Engineering Teaching and organize engineering panels, industry dinners, the Engineering Open House during Stanford’s Admit Weekend and more.

For all business and recruiting inquiries, please contact the chapter president Ryan Cohen at rrcohen@stanford.edu.
