Outreach & Diversity

ECE’s commitment

We believe that real solutions can only be found when people from all identities and walks of life have seats at the table and opportunities to lead. We are committed to ensuring our environment is one that celebrates diversity, equity, and inclusion for all members of the ECE and U-M community. Join us in making this a community where we lift each other up.
