The College of Engineering strives to be a national leader in diversity, equity and inclusion. The college engages in and leads significant efforts to increase diversity among the field's future leaders through the office of Diversity, Outreach and Inclusion (DOI). The DOI office offers a variety of student-centric programming designed to increase self-efficacy and foster community among historically excluded and underrepresented students and provides resources to support our faculty and staff. All faculty are expected to participate in, support and/or lead these efforts and to contribute to the college's inclusive climate via their work in one of many ways, including teaching, service, mentoring and advising.
