Diversity Statement

"The Faculty of the College of Engineering affirms its long-standing commitment to diversity in all of our educational and research programs and practices. Equity for, and inclusion of, historically underrepresented groups in engineering are critical to developing a creative, effective, and versatile workforce. We are proud that we have a significantly higher fraction of women engineering undergraduates than the national average and we look forward to continuing increases in the level of participation of women and minorities in all aspects of college life."
