Lafayette College’s Engineering Division strives to provide an inclusive environment for all to learn, develop and thrive. We are committed to fostering a supportive and encouraging climate where all students feel welcomed and valued.
At the 2015 National Engineering Deans Meeting, an ad-hoc group of engineering deans including Lafayette’s Director of Engineering, Scott Hummel, proposed a program aimed at increasing the diversity of students and faculty in engineering. The resulting Engineering Deans Diversity Initiative has been signed by over 225 engineering deans nationally. The initiative calls for each engineering program to commit to developing a diversity initiative.
