Diversity and Inclusion

Pre-college and College Educational and Diversity Programs

The CBBG leadership exemplifies “diversity that fosters diversity,” and brings together four universities with large minority enrollments and exemplary outreach STEM programs. The CBBG’s comprehensive educational and diversity programs include outreach to K-12, community college, and 4-year college undergraduates to expose them to scientific principles and engineering solutions. Undergraduate and graduate curricula, mentoring and internship programs, and professional development programs such as job shadowing are used to train a workforce equipped with the interdisciplinary skills necessary for success in this emerging field. CBBG outreach programs are designed to captivate a diverse group of students and foster interest in the interdependence between societal well-being, the engineered infrastructure, and the natural world.

Resources for Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity:

We are pleased to announce a new BioGeotechNotes weekly feature: Resources on Inclusion Diversity and Equity, or RIDE. To enhance our commitment to educating ourselves on issues associated with equity and inclusion, and to foster creation of a welcoming and inclusive environment, this space will highlight different resources each week on these important topics. These weekly recommendations compliment the many resources now included in both our Diversity and Inclusion webpage and our CBBG Slack Channel Diversity-and-Inclusion. Our intent is to promote greater awareness and understanding of the barriers, both explicit and implicit, faced by some of our colleagues and also to provide recommended actions in response to injustice.
