The Department of Mechanical Engineering (MechE) strives 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. We seek to foster an understanding and aware community where these incidences do not occur. Our activities and events are open to all regardless of gender, race, or national origin.

The MechE Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force 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.

Please contact the co-chairs Eva Mergner and Chris McComb for more information.
