Our Vision

We envision a radically inclusive Civil and Environmental Engineering Department that:

  • uses a strength-based approach to personalize the learning experience and improve learning outcomes for all students
  • creates community within the university to foster inclusive academic practices
  • supports our students' diverse learning and thinking styles
  • cultivates the potential of neurodiverse students to contribute to engineering breakthroughs
  • contributes to the development of a more diverse engineering workforce
