Anti-Racism and creating a welcoming environment for all
Following are some of the ways racism has shown up in the College of Engineering. These actions are endemic of a long-standing problem. As we strive to build an inclusive and equitable environment for learning, research, service and outreach we ask you to review and reflect on these instances and consider the role you can play in creating a welcoming environment for all.
Fostering inclusion calendar
Culture is one of the overarching pillars the College of Engineering pursues in our vision and commitment to building an inclusive and equitable community for all students, staff, faculty, and community members. This calendar aims to acknowledge and increase understanding of diverse cultures, traditions, values, and beliefs.
The DEI assessment
The College engaged an external consulting firm, Erolin Solutions, to assess climate and build a strategic and sustainable approach to achieve diversity, equity and inclusion, in order to help the College meet the DEIS goals outlined through the Strategic Planning process.
