The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (CEAE) at CU Boulder is committed to fostering inclusive excellence, increasing diversity and equity, and providing a welcoming departmental community that fosters a sense of belonging, engagement with diverse perspectives, and success for students, staff, and faculty. CEAE will actualize inclusive excellence utilizing the following priorities to guide our values and practices.
We will actively engage in practices that enhance our community’s progress towards actualizing the university’s Diversity and Excellence in Academics (IDEA) Plan and the Anti-racism, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Actions for Change. We recognize that all members of our community are responsible for our conduct and interactions with each other. The CEAE Department JEDI committee works with department leadership to uphold these principles and support this mission; if you would like to know more about the JEDI committee or its activities, please feel free to contact them directly.
During the 2022-2023 academic year, the CEAE JEDI team will develop suggestions in response to department-specific results from the campus culture survey. Specifically, we plan to work on the following projects:
- Develop additional guidance for the department leadership team to foster a civil work environment and effectively address concerns amongst CEAE community members.
- Compile suggestions on inclusive excellence in the classroom and distribute this to CEAE faculty.
- Create platform for faculty members to acknowledge each other and build community
