Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Engineering

Community resources.

We value equity.
We value diversity.
We value inclusion.

Our people are committed to and manifest a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive culture that showcases respect, collegiality, and intellectual freedom. We recognize that diversity is a driver for innovative and creative solutions that benefit our society through engineering. We demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion through our educational practice, our workplace culture, our hiring processes, and our engagement with the community.


 "To you, especially those of color and those who belong to other minority groups, I hear you and pledge the following:

  1. you have my full support;
  2. the School of Engineering, Vanderbilt University, and I share your frustration and disgust over historical and structural racism;
  3. we will never tolerate discrimination or any other form of racism."
