The Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (CEAE) Department along with the Environmental Engineering (EVEN) program is strongly committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in our community. Collectively our goal is to lead in education and research related to the sustainable development, management, and safety of civil and architectural infrastructure systems, and environmental challenges. Our graduate program brings together a diverse knowledge base, perspectives, and approaches. With this diversity, in a community actively pursuing inclusivity and collaboration, we believe we can develop solutions that will help us overcome the biggest challenges impacting our communities and world. 

To meet our commitment to creating and maintaining a community that upholds these values, we are committed to

  • Prioritizing actions toward an inclusive environment for all students, faculty, and staff;
  • Providing evidence-based and equity-enhancing support and opportunities, including mentorship, fellowships, and research support;
  • Providing educational experiences for our students that engages the interrelationship between engineering and social justice;
  • Developing and implementing a departmental and program Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence in Academics (IDEA) plan in alignment with University of Colorado Boulder; and
  • Listening to members of our community so that we can continuously improve.
