Engineering Diversity and Inclusion Council

Engineering Diversity and Inclusion Council Logo


The Engineering Diversity and Inclusion Council was created in Spring 2018 in response to student concerns and initiatives. This council convenes to this day and consists of faculty, staff, and student organization leaders who have been working towards creating a culture of belonging in the School of Engineering. We are committed to developing a diverse and inclusive engineering school where everyone can succeed and feel welcome, safe, and supported. Through collaboration among faculty, students, and staff, we seek to educate and empower the community.


Are you looking to get involved with the EDI or want to discuss an issue or topic with the EDI Council? Please send an email to Ricardo Padilla, Jr.
