Supporting Diversity & Inclusion
- In collaboration with the Detroit Area Pre College Engineering Program (DAPCEP) the Diversity Programs Office (DPO) under the direction of Theo Caldwell, hosts the Teen Engineering Experience at Michigan State (TEEMS) for students in grades 7-11 and the Renewable Energy Advancement for Detroit Youth (READY) program for male students in grade 10.
- MSU also participates in the NSF-supported Michigan Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (MI-LSAMP) through the DPO to significantly increase the number of under-represented minority students graduating with STEM degrees.
- For the fourth consecutive year, our Engineering and Science Success Academy (ESSA) received funding from the DTE Energy Foundation and the MSU Office of the Provost. This six-week residential program, initiated in 2007 by the DPO, helps ensure that at-risk students succeed within the College of Engineering.
