In January 2019, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering launched an initiative focused on diversity and inclusion for with the goal of becoming a global leader in diversity, equity and inclusion for engineering.

A task force of faculty and staff across the Fulton Schools began the important work of supporting underrepresented groups and promoting their involvement in engineering fields. This work means building and maintaining a student body that is inclusive of all backgrounds and supportive of all dimensions of diversity. It also means empowering faculty members, staff and students to promote diversity, equity and inclusion.

From 2020 to 2022, the Fulton Schools has developed a plan to meet a number of objectives, including:

–balancing the diversity of students to represent population statistics,
–fostering a culture of inclusion among graduate and undergraduate student bodies,
–providing training to students and faculty to improve diversity awareness, and recognizing
–accomplishments in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.

As part of this effort, the Fulton Schools also plans to improve K-12 outreach, focusing on schools that serve large numbers of underrepresented minority students, and increase participation in events supporting women in engineering.

Diversity and Inclusion Initiative at the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering (DII@FSE)

In January 2019, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering launched a new initiative focusing on diversity and inclusion — core values to the Fulton Schools and ASU, as exemplified in the university charter. This initiative is called DII@FSE.

Our DII@FSE task force has articulated a vision to follow strategies and practices that support environments where individuals feel included, valued and respected and where different kinds of people can succeed.

The DII@FSE has submitted a proposal to the American Society for Engineering Education’s (ASEE) Diversity Recognition Program. That proposal was awarded bronze status (the highest entry status a university can be awarded).  Next steps for the initiative will be working together to realize the plan’s goals.

Goals

  1. Create and maintain a student body and workforce across the Fulton Schools that is diverse in multiple dimensions and inclusive for all.
  2. Empower faculty, staff, students and academic associates at the Fulton Schools to embrace the core values and practice of diversity, equity and inclusion.
  3. Be a global leader in diversity, equity and inclusion in engineering.
