About the DPO
Since its inception in 1968, the Diversity Programs Office (DPO) has positively impacted the academic, professional and personal growth of tens of thousands of underrepresented minority students through a range of programs.
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. Such an environment develops respect for differences while fostering caring relationships and cross-cultural understanding. Through the Diversity Programs Office, the College of Engineering continues to host an environment where a broad spectrum of informed perspectives give rise to spirited, mind-opening and unique opportunities that prepare students for life in an increasingly diverse world.
