Dean's Commission on Equity, Diversity, & Racial Justice

The College of Engineering has been striving to bring an engineering education within reach of all who desire it, in furtherance of CSULB's core values of equity and inclusive excellence, and the goal to increase racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in the field.

In response to input from student groups, including the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), the College in 2020 formed the Dean's Commission on Equity, Diversity, and Racial Justice. The commission is working on finding creative ways to achieve the goals of equity, diversity, and racial justice.
