ECE welcomes students of all nationalities, cultures, and backgrounds. We are proud of the diverse communities that are represented by our students, alumni, faculty, and staff, and we are committed to recognizing and celebrating that diversity.
In an effort to make the department a home away from home for our students, we acknowledge and celebrate many cultural events and holidays from around the world. These events serve to empower cultural exchange, understanding, and respect. All are welcome to attend!
