DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

The Cullen College of Engineering prides itself on its commitment to inclusive excellence. As a testament to this, the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) recently honored the UH Cullen College of Engineering with an award recognizing its commitment to diversity.

The Cullen College of Engineering recognizes that there is a constant need for improvement in this mission, and remains devoted to increasing diversity and inclusiveness within our college and the greater community at large.
