Our commitment to diversity and inclusion

Our school, and the engineering profession, cannot reach their maximum potential without embracing the diversity of ideas and experiences that come from people of different backgrounds and creating an inclusive culture where all people can thrive. Moreover, creating and harnessing technology to benefit humanity cannot be accomplished without the broad perspectives and skills of a diverse community. The diversity in all dimensions of the SEAS community and in the engineering profession are well below my aspirations, so we have much work to do. As dean, I am committed to ensuring that the School of Engineering and Applied Science dramatically increases the diversity of its members, while providing an inclusive and collaborative culture such that all members of our community can achieve their full potential.

Creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive community requires leadership, shared commitment, and sustained effort by all members of SEAS. To coordinate and spearhead our efforts, we have a dedicated Office of Diversity and Inclusion. We welcome your ideas and suggestions on improving diversity, inclusion, and equity in the SEAS community.
