Diversity & inclusion

Two students celebrating at graduation

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering is committed to the pursuit of a fully inclusive community, and embraces the University of Minnesota’s position that promoting and supporting diversity among the student body, faculty and staff is central to the academic mission of the University. 

We define “diversity” in the broadest sense of the word. Our university community is strengthened by our students representing different races, religions, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, geographic origins, genders, sexualities, and beliefs. We recognize and respect that a diverse community promotes equity through respect for, and opportunities to learn from, people with a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.
