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.
