The College of Engineering and the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering is committed to a diverse and inclusive community. This means we must ensure that each of our students, faculty, and staff are educated about all issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We embrace persons of every race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, background, belief, and ability.

We also dedicate ourselves to addressing and fighting discrimination on our campus and in our lives. This includes racism, racial bias, and racial injustice. Our shared vision is one of social justice, opportunity, community, and equity.

We are consistently pursuing a mission that creates a community that exemplifies the best in us all, ensuring a better, more equitable, and sustainable future for everyone. We believe that our impact must reach beyond the classroom, research labs, our campus, and the technology we create. We must improve the human condition where injustice lives.

We will continue to work to understand, value, and celebrate all people as we work to create an inclusive educational and work environment that welcomes all. This is essential to our success. It is essential for our world.
