Diversity and Outreach Events
The Office of Diversity and Outreach is proud to host a variety of events designed to facilitate a welcoming and supportive environment for each and every one of our students, bringing them together to share various backgrounds and experiences.
When Inclusivity Really Enhances Diversity (WIRED)
The WIRED Series is aimed towards educating students on the significance of having an inclusive and diverse environment. These events range from our famous ‘Cultural Immersion Lunches’, in which we discuss topics across cultures over a meal, to our ‘Take a Break’ series which emphasizes the importance of mindfulness and mental health, in order to provide students with the tools they need to remain healthy throughout their time in college.
The College of Engineering will host a two-hour interactive workshop: Men Allies for Gender Equity Workshop! We will be welcoming faculty from North Dakota State University who have developed this National Science Foundation-funded approach to addressing STEM gender equity issues in academic institutions. More information is available for faculty, staff and students.
Cultivating Professionalism and Understanding (CPU)
The CPU series focuses on hosting professional development workshops for faculty and staff in the College of Engineering with the purpose of creating a professional and understanding environment. Events can range from workshops on understanding bias to addressing imposter syndrome.
