Diversity in Engineering

Purdue University College of Engineering acknowledges that we are located in the traditional homelands of the Woodland People. We honor and appreciate these indigenous caretakers which include the Bodéwadmik (Potawatomi), Lenape (Delaware), Myaamia (Miami), and Shawnee People.

The College of Engineering wants you to feel valued and welcome. We’re committed to creating and sustaining a welcoming environment for all.

Our goal is to create a place where everyone has the opportunity to excel. An academic environment where everyone’s contributions and perspectives are respected and valued. A campus community where barriers to respect and collaboration are eliminated.

Purdue Engineering values prospective and current students, postdocs, faculty, and staff of different backgrounds. We celebrate diversity and denounce hate to any people in our community who are Black, Indigenous and People of Color. We recognize that diversity of background and thoughts are critical to make our next giant leap.

The College of Engineering embraces our differences as strengths. This website serves as a landing page, including resources offered by the College of Engineering and Purdue University. Regardless of your race/ethnicity, we encourage you to learn more about systemic racial injustices and how you can be part of making the Engineering community a more inclusive and equitable space.
