Dept. of CBE: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Commitment to Diversity

CBE recognizes that a diverse faculty, staff, and student body is vital to producing future leaders, creating innovative research, and serving society. Our faculty and students collaborate on a range of programs aimed at promoting diversity, from undergraduate and graduate outreach to academic support and pre-professional advancement.

Promoting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering believes that a diverse student body, faculty and staff are critical to our mission of educating leaders, creating knowledge, and serving society. The college’s faculty and staff are deeply involved in the programs listed here — which support first-generation students, underrepresented minorities, women, transfer students, veterans and others — and the department provides significant support (both in terms of financial support and in terms of participation) for ongoing and expanded opportunities. These and other campus programs help our students develop academically, professionally and as leaders.
