The College of Engineering is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We strive to build and support an inclusive community where all members thrive, are valued and feel a sense of belonging.
The Office of Inclusive Excellence (OIE)
Established in 2022, OIE leads strategic, policy-focused changes to transform the culture of the College of Engineering by embedding DEI best practices throughout our communities and improving structures that enable DEI initiatives to succeed. Our expansive work includes supporting student development, providing leadership training, and growing our population of students with diverse backgrounds.
Our strategic goals
Embracing the power of diversity, equity and inclusion is a central goal in the College’s strategic plan. We will pursue our vision by focusing our work around four pillars: people, capacity, culture and social/public good. Actionable and measurable five-year goals guide our strategic plan and facilitate sustainable cultural change.
Communities for students
We encourage students to connect with their peers through affinity groups where they can come together to find community. Students can also access resources such as study centers and spaces that provide free tutoring and assistance for many common STEM courses.
