Diversity and Inclusion

As a department, we have made it our mission to create and sustain a diverse and inclusive environment in which all students, faculty, and staff can thrive.

The Broadening Participation in Computing BPC 2022-2024 Department Plan has been verified by BPCnet.org.

The CS Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) Phase II: Outline is now available. The full plan draft will be released in Fall 2022.
