Our values

In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, we strive to be an inclusive, diverse, collaborative, and supportive community that engages all students, faculty, and staff to participate, prosper, benefit, and reach their full potential. We condemn all forms of racism and discrimination.

In MechE, the DEI Committee for Community Engagement, Graduate Education Committee, Undergraduate Eduation Committee and Faculty Search Committee play a leading role in cultivating an inclusive and equitable community.

The MechE Diversity Equity, and Inclusion Committee for Community Engagement

The MechE Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee for Community Engagement consists of nearly 30 students, staff, and faculty working aggressively on many initiatives to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all of us. Initititatives include:

Mechanical Engineering Outreach Stars (MEOS) program provides funding and recognition for student outreach efforts. Students can apply for a financial grant to support ongoing outreach activities. During the 2021-2022 school year, MEOS recognized 48 students for their contributions to the community.
