Diversity

At the College of Engineering, our people make us who we are, and we welcome folks from all different cultures, creeds and genders with a policy of absolute inclusion. Ours is the most diverse college of engineering in the U.S., known for graduating the most women and underrepresented minority engineers. 

The College is one of the most diverse engineering programs in the nation 

"Diversity is not charity. The most successful businesses that have the best revenue are the most diverse companies. And why does that go together? Because diversity brings the most creative ideas together." - Manu Platt, co-founder, Project ENGAGES
 

A myriad of programs on campus work to increase racial diversity in engineering. Leadership at the College is especially passionate about increasing diversity, because they are well aware that a community built from individuals who each have a unique perspective is stronger, smarter, and has an even better chance to change the world.

A few organizations within the College help to accomplish this mission of increased diversity.

The College is ranked #1 for Hispanic gradate students by Hispanic Business Magazine
