Diversity Support and Resources

Wright State University celebrates diversity, as does the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Our commitment to helping each and every pioneer reach their full potential is demonstrated daily in the Center for Equity in Engineering Education’s support system, the Student Success Center’s services, the Brandeberry Career Development Center’s partnerships, our student clubs and societies, scholarship programs, and civic engagement opportunities. The college recently received the ASEE Diversity Recognition Program Bronze Level Award, which puts us among the nation’s leaders in inclusive excellence.
