Equity and Inclusion in STEM

rainbow-colored hands raised with the text "you should be heard"

The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) recognizes the need for communication between students, staff, faculty, and the administration in order to build a supportive and inclusive environment.  CSE has created two ambassador programs to help facilitate this need as we work towards creating a more inclusive and equitable space for all. 

The Engineering & Design Department has two levels of critical roles devoted to supporting students, staff, and faculty in this department. ENGD Community Ambassador and Student Ambassador representatives are listed below.  

The Engineering & Design Department supports additional roles of Student Engagement Liaisons that help meet the goal of creating a nurturing and inclusive environment.
