The Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering actively contributes to the CU Boulder College of Engineering and Applied Science’s commitment to create a diverse environment and inclusive culture. We aspire to engage all members of our engineering community and to meaningfully and equitably support students, faculty and staff whose identities have historically been underrepresented, underserved and marginalized in engineering. It is only by valuing and respecting the merits of diverse cultural backgrounds and identities that we are able to facilitate innovative and inclusive approaches to advance scientific breakthroughs, launch new technologies and educate engineers capable of addressing societal challenges. We aim to contribute to greater equity and inclusivity in engineering research and industry by equipping graduates with the knowledge and tools to be effective leaders and innovators.
Our department community and culture continue to evolve and adapt as we grow individually and collectively to be better teammates, learners, educators, researchers, colleagues and citizens. We welcome feedback and dialogue as we want all members of our community engaged. If you have ideas, suggestions or input related to enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion, please share in the comment box. Please include your email address if you would like us to follow-up with you directly. Sharing your name and email address is not required.
As a department, we are committed to continuously advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in our community:
Students, staff, and faculty with concerns about discrimination or harassment should immediately contact the instructor, the department chair, their academic advisor and the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance.
