Our programs provide a forum for students to access resources, build community, and collaborate collectively toward our shared goals of equity and excellence in engineering.
The Equity and Inclusion Initiatives team is housed in the dean’s office of student affairs at the School of Engineering. Fueled by our shared passion for equity and social justice, we are committed to advancing a culture of accessibility, respect, inclusion, and empowerment at Stanford Engineering.
The goal of Stanford Engineering’s Equity and Inclusion Initiatives is to ensure that diversity efforts are not siloed but are ingrained in the very fabric of the institution. Our programs provide a forum for students to access resources, build community, and collaborate collectively toward our shared goals of equity and excellence in engineering. But more than this, we want to empower students to become change agents and thought leaders in their own right. This can only be accomplished if forging an inclusive culture becomes the shared responsibility of faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
We believe in three core principles to advancing equity and inclusion in engineering: commitment, community, and change agency.
The team collaborates with student societies, corporate donors, and campus partners to help develop a deep sense of inclusivity and belonging in engineering spaces. We provide a range of programs, consultation, and educational support to the Stanford Engineering community on issues related to accessibility, belonging, inclusion, and diverse representation.
Our work provides spaces for students to be their full, authentic selves as they excel in their academic communities. We strive to create an inclusive culture and community where we empower our students to challenge the narrative of what engineering research and researchers look like. We do what we do because of the impact it has on our students. Here what our students have to say:
