Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our entire community benefits when individuals from different personal, cultural, and disciplinary perspectives are working together. Increasing the diversity of our faculty and students is fundamental to our mission. It improves and accelerates the rate and impact of our academics, research, and reputation.

We seek to develop a diverse and highly motivated pool of engineering researchers, students and future graduates that will work together to address major societal challenges.

Guidelines to Write an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement for Faculty Candidates

The equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) statement is an opportunity for a candidate to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in research and education through advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The EDI statement can be viewed as similar to the “Broader Impacts” section that is required in a National Science Foundation (NSF) proposal.
