Here in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI, we place a high value on diversity in all of its forms. Women, people of color, lgbtq+ students, students with disabilities and individuals from other countries all come together in our classrooms to learn and grow with each other.
Supporting diverse populations is also important to us and we do this in several ways. One of our favorite ways to support diverse students in through a number of student organizations including, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Women in Technology (WiT) and Women Engineering Network (WEN).
Diversity is celebrated at the campus level too. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion houses several student resources specific to minority populations including the Multicultural Center, the LGBTQ+ Center and Adaptive Educational Services.
Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
The Society of Women Engineers is a global organization whose mission is to stimulate women to achieve full potential in their careers as engineers and leaders, expand their image of engineering professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity.
