Diversity at the UI College of Engineering

College of Engineering Diversity Image

The College of Engineering is committed to building a welcoming and inclusive community of learning and scholarship with the support systems for all persons to thrive. Recognizing that diversity enriches the educational experience where everyone has the opportunity to excel and their contributions are respected and valued, the college has established the Associate Dean for Diversity and Outreach to develop and refine programs for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff as well as for inspiring K-12 students. Diversity leadership is managed within the Outreach, Admissions, Scholarships & Inclusion Services (OASIS) (CUSTOM CONTENT) group.

The mission of Diversity Programs in the College of Engineering is to provide a successful learning experience for all students. We strive to ensure that students, especially those from groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering, have the opportunity to realize their aspirations while also contributing their unique ideas, skills, talents, and strengths to the daily life of the College of Engineering. The many diverse groups represented within our student body are integral to the fabric of our college, and programs focusing specifically on pathways to their success contribute to the mission of both the university and the college.
