Diversity Programs

Welcome to the Diversity Programs Office!

The Diversity Programs Office (DPO) at the College of Engineering provides academic and non-academic support to increase enrollment, retention, and graduation among under-represented minorities and women. We have a tutoring program that also provides academic support.

Our goal is to assist students in achieving their academic goals by offering services and programs that include seminars, academic assistance, and access to undergraduate research and scholarship opportunities.

Our office is located in 128 Marston Hall - a warm and friendly place where students can get resources and/or discuss personal and academic concerns. Please come in and meet new engineering students, just like you.
