As many engineers know, diversity fosters engineering innovation and excellence, resulting in new solutions and positive societal impact. At the UC Davis College of Engineering, we’ve invested in specific efforts to increase the participation of women and underrepresented minorities in engineering and help them flourish. 

This year, we are delighted to report the college was honored with a Bronze Level recognition as part of the American Society of Engineering Education’s inaugural Diversity Recognition Program. The ASEE Diversity Recognition Program was created to “publicly recognize those engineering and engineering technology colleges that make significant, measurable progress in increasing the diversity, inclusion and degree attainment outcomes of their programs.” 

In our college, we strive to create an environment that is welcoming to and supportive of women and underrepresented minorities, coupled with an unwavering dedication to student success and diversity that sets us apart from other, large public institutions of higher education.
