Broadening opportunities and building community.
The Broadening Opportunity through Leadership and Diversity (BOLD) Center is part of the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s commitment to cultivate community, belonging, and an inclusive and equitable education environment for students. Our staff engages students with academic, cultural, social, professional, and leadership experiences to enhance their skillsets and preparedness to implement engineering and social solutions in an increasingly complex and diverse world. Our scholarship programs and student societies incorporate mentoring and meaningful engagement with alumni and industry partners.
Our community is interconnected in a transformative learning environment that mutually supports and values contributions to our engineering culture and broader society. Members thrive authentically, are celebrated for achievements, and feel a sense of belonging.
The BOLD Center advocates for and supports equitable student success. We broaden access to opportunities, community, and leadership.
