United Mexican-American Students Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (UMAS-MEChA) consists of students who have dedicated their lives and skills to the advancement of the principles of human rights and to the needs of the Chicano community. UMAS-MEChA is able to unite in one common purpose: a demand for respect for human dignity and true equality and justice for all members of this society. They struggle to learn and learn to struggle - not for individual gain but to serve our Chicano/Chicana people.
Our organization strongly believes in the right to a fair and equal education. Education, we believe, is the key to improving the social and political situation of the Chicano/Chicana community.
We represent the new generation of Chicano/Chicana students who have the responsibility of upholding the tradition and history of UMAS-MEChA and its people, and the Raza community. In our hands, it is a tool for liberation, justice, equality, and self-determination for all Chicanos and all students.
We believe that learning and sharing in different cultures is a way to foster a sense of community amongst diverse individuals and nurture an environment of tolerance.
Our weekly meetings are on Monday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Tivioli 642.

Hispanics represent less than 7 percent of the Engineering workforce in the country.
As an engineering student organization for the University of Colorado Denver we aim to retain current engineering students through supportive relationships and activities, promote engineering to students strong in the areas of Math and Science and to provide our members a connection to professional development opportunities.
Becoming a member of the CU Denver SHPE student org also requires membership to the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) national organization. Through this connection, CU Denver SHPE is provided with opportunities and resources that other student organizations do not necessarily have.
SHPE is the Source for Quality Hispanic Engineers and Technical Talent.
Statement of Values
We are brought together by heritage, social responsibility and desire to improve the equality of all people through the use of science and technology. We value excellence in education, professional pursuits and leadership. We obtain excellence through integrity, empowerment, achievement, diversity and continuous improvement.
SHPE is the leading social-technical organization whose primary function is to enhance and achieve the potential of Hispanics in engineering, math and science.
Strategic Focus Areas
We will fulfill our mission by increasing educational opportunities, promoting professional and personal growth, carry out our social responsibility to be involved in education, business and government issues and enhancing pride within our organization and reinforcing our reputation as a vital Hispanic organization
