Office of Diversity and Outreach Initiatives (DOI)
At Mizzou Engineering we honor our values by insuring a diverse and inclusive college. Our Office of Diversity and Outreach Initiatives facilitates the outreach, recruitment, retention, and overall success of all members of our community, especially those from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in engineering. We provide professional development programming surrounding inclusion, equity, and diversity for all of our students, staff, and faculty. We house the Inclusivity Center which provides a physical space where everyone is welcome as well as a venue for our events and activities. We are also home to the Women in Engineering Program which focuses on all activities that support and recruit women students. We currently direct the Minority Engineering Program and work with student chapters. Our overarching goal is to help foster community for all members, as well as encourage community outreach and professional interaction.

Inclusivity Center Vision
Our vision is to provide a welcoming environment for all students, staff, and faculty as well as prospective students in the College of Engineering and across campus. Everyone is diverse in their own way and we welcome you to our center to take part in activities, to have lunch, or to do your work
