The recent and rapid growth of Hispanics in collegiate engineering disciplines over the past decade has spurred the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)’s to accelerate the sophistication of its leadership development and annual chapter programming infrastructure. SHPE aims this effort towards its mission fulfillment of advancing Hispanics as contributors and leaders in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) workforce. To this end, McCormick’s social cognitive leadership model was mapped to SHPE’s leadership development and annual chapter programming infrastructure and cycle. The National Institute for Leadership Advancement (NILA), SHPE’s premier leadership development conference, was mapped to the leader social cognitions portion of the McCormick model due to its incorporation of domain-specific leadership and self-efficacy. We measured the NILA attendees’ gained self-efficacy through pre- and post-conference surveys. The survey questions and validity are presented. The survey results show a growth of attendees’ self-efficacy and preparation to interface in their leadership environment of the STEM collegiate system and workforce. Given McCormick’s leadership model and our mappings focus on leadership self-efficacy, the leadership programming and chapter-based organizational infrastructure is widely applicable to other chapter-based organizations.
