» Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Fowler Engineering takes representation seriously and seeks to lead campus-wide Diversity and Inclusion efforts

Our School's mission is built upon the following principles:

  • We will build truly inclusive student, staff, and faculty environments and experiences.
  • In the recruitment and mentorship of students, staff and faculty, we will recognize, acknowledge, and act in response to the headwinds of racism and discrimination that prevent individuals from achieving their full potential.
  • We will work diligently to provide the financial support and intentional mentorship required to ensure that underrepresented groups are not perpetually underrepresented because of socio-economic factors.
  • We will recognize and celebrate the historical and contemporary innovators, luminaries, and leaders who have suffered under the headwinds of racism and discrimination.

Guided by those principles, our faculty work diligently to build respectful, accessible and inclusive environments that support learning and innovation for our entire student body. Our programs are designed to build global perspectives of how technology can transform lives for the better. Team-based approaches in an interdisciplinary setting produce engineers who are more sophisticated, compassionate and thoughtful. We prepare our students to produce audacious and innovative solutions in response to society’s grandest challenges, connecting to large scale issues and humble solutions.

Fowler is different - together we are stronger. We strive to ensure that all of our students have the support they need to confidently move forward and succeed. As we pursue and achieve that goal, our present and future will represent inclusivity and equitable change.
