In recognition of its ongoing efforts to promote and improve diversity and inclusion, the University of Kentucky College of Engineering has received a Bronze Award from the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE). In addition to the Bronze Award, the college was further recognized as being “exemplar.” The distinction came as the result of ASEE’s inaugural Diversity Recognition Program.
According to ASEE’s website, “…the ASEE Diversity Recognition Program was created to publicly recognize those engineering and engineering technology colleges that make significant, measurable progress in increasing the diversity, inclusion, and degree attainment outcomes of their programs.”
“This recognition from the ASEE demonstrates that our college, working hand in hand with the university, is intentional about opening doors for people who not only need opportunities and resources, but also to feel welcome and wanted,” said Dean Rudy Buchheit. “While I am encouraged, we certainly have more work to do.”
