UGA Engineering Recognized for Diversity

The University of Georgia College of Engineering has been recognized by the American Society of Engineering Education for its commitment to diversity and inclusion. This is the first year of ASEE's recognition program, and UGA's College of Engineering was named a bronze-level institution, currently the highest level an institution can receive.

Along with over 200 other members of ASEE, the UGA College of Engineering committed to engage in a variety of initiatives focused on creating a more diverse engineering workforce, including the development of a diversity plan in consultation with national organizations like the National Society of Black Engineers, the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers, and the Society of Women Engineers. Other commitments include developing ways to increase faculty diversity and creating community college and K-12 pipeline activities.

In recent years, the College of Engineering has developed a Diversity and Inclusion Plan and created a Dean's Task Force on Accessibility, Diversity, and Inclusion, composed of faculty, staff, and engineering students.
