NSCS provides many services including career, leadership and graduate school connections. The organization – whose three pillars are scholarship, leadership and service – also offers more than $1 million annually in scholarships, awards and chapter funds.

There are 320 NSCS chapters in the United States. UTEP is one of only 52 Gold Star Chapters.

The Gold Star Chapter certification recognizes the work the UTEP chapter has put into developing its program and its commitment to the ideals of NSCS.

The UTEP chapter meets five to six times each academic year and is involved in a number of community service projects throughout the year. Membership provides students with many opportunities to enrich their academic career and to serve their University and community.
