The Engineering Office of Diversity (EOD) administers the Diversity Graduate Engineering Program to identify and recruit traditionally underrepresented students into graduate engineering education through partnerships with student organizations, recruitment fairs and events, visits to other universities and colleges, graduate research experience, and diversity graduate fellowships and scholarships.
SSOE Diversity Graduate Engineering Program (DGEP) focuses on Developing and implementing the Multi-Campus Partnership for URM Access into the PhD program. This is a graduate access and inclusion dimension strategy is designed to build capacity bridges between a PhD-granting institution and multiple graduate pipeline programs and non-PhD granting institutions to identify top students early, cultivate talent for advancement, develop a communication plan that keeps them informed, and ease the transition into PhD program.
