Michigan Engineering prioritizes building and promoting a diverse learning environment. We believe the diversity of the student body at Michigan Engineering enhances the intellectual experience for all students and creates a vibrant atmosphere for learning.
Further, it is our mission to prepare engineering students for successful careers in a global workforce. To prosper now and in the future, we must exemplify and seek out good ideas, hard work, intelligence, and diligence. Members of the Michigan community recognize and respect the quality of people, not archaic stereotypes tied to race, gender, culture, socioeconomic class, sexual identification, or other notions that hinder progress.
Our mission at the Center for Engineering Diversity and Outreach is to provide the leadership, expertise, and programs needed to promote and nurture diversity for all Michigan Engineering students, faculty, and staff. We are especially committed to supporting diverse students and helping them to reach their academic potential.
Our work has three components: access, achievement, and inclusion
- Provide K-12 outreach and pipeline development programs (access)
- Develop initiatives and programs designed to help Michigan Engineering students excel academically (achievement)
- Promote and steward multicultural engagement throughout the college and university (inclusion)
Our primary goal is to develop engineers who are innovative leaders in a global society.
