College of Science & Engineering

Equity and Inclusion

CSE Inclusion Mission Statement

The College of Science and Engineering’s goal is to nurture a supportive and inclusive environment and culture by actively building a college of faculty, staff, and students that values and is reflective of the diverse communities served by WWU, promoting best practices sustaining and supporting equity, inclusivity, and diversity, and by investing in programs that support student success.

These hours are a time for students, staff and faculty to bring concerns, feedback or questions as it related to equity, inclusion and diversity within STEM. We hope that we, the Community Ambassadors and the STEM Inclusion and Outreach Specialist, can advise and also guide people to college, university or external resources.
