DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
Personal and professional values in the College of Engineering
The students, scholars and staff in the College of Engineering are united in our common desire to make the world a better place. We are firmly committed to fostering an environment of diversity, equity and inclusion that will allow everyone to realize their full potential. As a College, we acknowledge and are actively working to address any systemic barriers of prejudice that may exist within the engineering community and society at large. Our actions align with the goals of the engineering and computer science organizations and accrediting bodies that set the bar for personal and professional excellence in our vital disciplines.
We define diversity as the condition of having different fundamental characteristics or being composed of differing elements; the inclusion of different types of people (such as people of different races or cultures) in a group or organization.
We define equity as the condition of having justice according to natural law or right, specifically the freedom from bias or favoritism or inconsistent treatment.
We define inclusion as the act, activities, and policies of including or the state of being included.
