Diversity and Inclusion in Engineering

MEP Student Group Picture

Diversity and inclusion continues to be a priority on our campus, and the achievement of our diverse student body is testimony to that ideal. Open to all students, OU College of Engineering Diversity Programs facilitates the outreach, recruitment, retention and overall success of underrepresented minorities, including African American, Native American, Hispanic, women, first-generation college students and students with disabilities.

Diversity programs also supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and queer students. One facet of Diversity Programs is the Multicultural Engineering Program. With a diverse student population, we are better able to solve problems and implement new ideas because our students come to us with different backgrounds, experiences, knowledge and understanding.

OU to accept 12 Fellows Immediately

The Bridge to the Doctorate is a nation-wide program sponsored by the National Science Foundation and awarded annually to participating (Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation) LSAMP institutions from coast to coast. The first cohort began in Oklahoma in 2004 at OSU and has continued successfully with additional cohorts at OU and OSU. Each Fellow is expected to complete the Ph.D. and is given support for up to five years, provided they make satisfactory progress towards the degree.

If you have questions regarding positions available, please do not hesitate to contact any BD program across the nation. The University of Oklahoma was awarded the BD grant as part of Cohort VI and will accept twelve new Fellows into the program immediately.
