Diversity, Equity and Inclusion funds

The challenges we face as a society demand solutions engineered by diverse, inclusive teams of professionals with a desire to make a positive impact on the world.

A more diverse and inclusive College will provide students with the ability to work in cross-cultural teams, give businesses a competitive advantage, and more effectively improve lives and contribute to the public good. Together, we can support talented Washington students while building a more inclusive engineering workforce.
