Multi-cultural Initiatives positively impacts the academic, professional and personal growth of thousands of underrepresented students through a range of programs that acknowledge and affirm the diversity of our community.

Diversity in the faculty, staff and students is a major resource of the College of Engineering’s intellectual vitality and innovative spirit. The College strives to be a community where people of different cultures, intellectual positions, and lifestyles can reach their full potential. Through Multi-cultural Initiatives, the College provides an environment predicated on intercultural awareness and understanding; where these differences are celebrated and our students are empowered. Our goal is to provide spirited, relevant, and unique opportunities that prepare students for success in an increasingly diverse world.
