In February, we celebrate Black History Month and recognize the cultural history, triumphs and adversities that are deeply rooted in our country's history. We seek to bring awareness about the many contributions of our Black and African American community members in our college and to the fields of engineering. 

CU Boulder Engineering recognizes that the terms “Black” and “African American” do not describe the community’s identity as a whole. We also recognize that a term that feels right for one person may not adequately capture the experience of another. We seek to celebrate as broadly and inclusively as possible, and to encourage individuals to proudly claim whatever label(s) best describe how they personally identify. 

As a college, we are committed to creating inclusive and supportive environments both in the college and in society at large. We are excited to celebrate the contributions of our college and society researchers, instructors, student leaders and alumni. On this page you will find stories of members of our engineering community and resources. Let’s learn about, celebrate, and uplift our Black and African-American community members.
