Welcome to the Center for Diversity

Our office's primary purpose is to increase the recruitment and retention of students from underrepresented populations in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) pursuing degrees in engineering and applied sciences at all academic stages. Historically, women of all backgrounds, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans are underrepresented in STEM and are thus our target groups to support; however, our doors are always open to students of all genders, backgrounds, and identities who seek our guidance and support. We believe that the varied perspectives brought by students, researchers and teachers of different backgrounds encourage creativity and innovation in problem definition and design solutions essential to the field of engineering.
We warmly encourage you to browse through our website to learn about our vision and mission, and to explore the services and programs we offer for pre-college, undergraduate and graduate students, and P–12 math and science teachers.
