Diversity in the College of Engineering

Diversity and Inclusivity

The Tickle College of Engineering is committed to protecting its Black students and colleagues. We are resolved to do the hard work to lead, learn, and create an equitable community that values and respects all people. View a list of resources we have compiled focused on allyship, antiracism, and social justice initiatives.

In the Tickle College of Engineering we embrace the Volunteer Spirit; we value academic research and rigor just as much as we value the inclusion of diverse students, faculty, and staff members. It is in the spirit of diversity and inclusivity that we educate—from the pre-college through the doctoral levels—and collaborate with one another within the college and with the larger UT community.

We recognize that in order for all of our members to excel, it is vital to nurture and sustain a community that respects and appreciates all individuals irrespective of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental or physical ability, socio-economic status, religion, national origin and/or citizenship status.

Accordingly, we do not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment. We maintain that by promoting and embodying diversity and inclusivity, we are better equipped to address the engineering challenges of our local and regional community, as well as the engineering challenges of our nation and beyond.

More information on student diversity programs—including Pre-College, Undergraduate, and Graduate Programs; and women students and faculty—can be found at Engineering Diversity Programs and Women in Engineering, respectively.
