Diversity is one of the five priorities in the Swanson School of Engineering (SSoE). Integration of a variety of diversity education activities, workshops and seminars are created to support the school mission to “produce highly qualified engineers and useful creative research and technology through academic excellence.” The primary purpose of SSoE Diversity education is to create healthy awareness of the school diversity and inclusion goals and to foster intercultural sensitivity and a positive non-discriminatory working, teaching and learning climate in an inclusive engineering community.

The Swanson School's diversity vision is a welcoming community that engages all of its diversity in research, teaching, and general education and learning of students. The 2-3 hour workshops and 1-2 hour seminars are offered on a variety of topics and are open to all in the Swanson School and in the University community.
