This site is intended to serve as a source of information about our organization and executive board, as well as a general resource to current and incoming graduate students.To contact SAGE directly, email
  • IGERTIntegrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) trains scientists and engineers in addressing the global questions of the future through innovative curricula, internships and focusing on problem-centered training.
  • CELESTBU Center of Excellence for Learning in Education, Science & Technology (CELEST) studies natural intelligence. This program reaches undergraduate and graduate students, public school students in Boston-area cities and thousands of students in New England who participate in summer programs at Boston University.
  • GEMNational GEM Consortium Partnering with BU since 1976, the National GEM Consortium seeks to increase the participation of underrepresented groups (African Americans, American Indians, and Hispanic Americans) at the master’s and doctoral levels in engineering and science. With university partners in Boston, BU founded the GEM GRAD LAB, designed to inform and motivate students from STEM fields to understand the importance of obtaining a graduate degree, which is now replicated nationwide.
  • NEAGEPNortheast Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate The NEAGEP Program Office is a resource for the BU community that assists with promoting access to graduate programs in science, mathematics and engineering for underrepresented groups.
  • SAGEStudent Association of Graduate Engineers SAGE is involved with Technology Entrepreneurship Night, the Entrepreneur Design Contest, and New England Regional competition during National Engineers Week.
  • GWISEGraduate Women in Science and Engineering (GWISE) GWISE strives to create a social and professional network which fosters interactions among graduate women across the many science and engineering disciplines here at BU.
