We strive for a community in which all backgrounds, contributions and perspectives are valued and respected.
Underpinning the technical, engineering and computer science expertise of Watson College faculty, staff, students and alumni is an understanding that diverse and inclusive groups maximize potential, innovation and impact. We therefore develop structures and opportunities that improve the experience of all students, especially those who are underrepresented in engineering and computer science. Watson faculty, staff and students assist in cultivating a community of members that are conscious of barriers to social mobility, exhibit and act on empathy and compassion, and advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), both within the college and beyond. Together, we learn, educate, innovate and work toward a more just and inclusive future. We embrace and cultivate our diversity and thrive because of it.
The Watson College is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment.
