EXCELLENCE IN DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
WE ARE COMMITTED
to expanding access to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education while engaging all segments of society in technological advancement. We have been a major contributor to advancing STEM diversity for over forty-fi ve years, prior to most national initiatives in this area. Our diversity efforts are founded upon two pillars: the STEM Smart programs and the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) honors program. STEM Smart is committed to the development of programs that deliver a variety of enrichment, support activities, and services to underrepresented minority and economically underserved students. WISE Honors offers educational and professional STEM opportunities for women at all levels of their development by facilitating individual, institutional, and social change. Together, these programs have broad reaching impact that we leverage to lead efforts towards broadening participation in engineering and applied sciences.
