Diversity Programs in Engineering
Diversity Programs in Engineering (DPE) operates programs at the precollege, undergraduate, graduate, and faculty levels to facilitate the recruitment, development, retention, and success of all members of the engineering community, but especially those from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in engineering. The DPE office provides an institutionalized approach for meeting the needs of undergraduate and graduate students by providing community, academic, professional and personal development opportunities that support student growth and achievement. The DPE office also works collaboratively with university and external partners to administer mentoring, tutoring and academic success programs; graduate school preparation and undergraduate research opportunities; graduate student fellowship programs; and precollege outreach initiatives.
