Well-Being, Diversity and Inclusion

At MIT Civil and Environmental Engineering we are dedicated to creating an inclusive and diverse community. We appreciate and welcome a community that comes from various backgrounds and holds diverse opinions. Please see below for a statement from our faculty members on well-being, diversity and inclusion.

MIT CEE Faculty Statement on Well-Being, Diversity and Inclusion

  • CEE is a community of people united in our pursuit of intellectual, creative, and technical excellence, to make a better world. We care about the mental and physical health of our students, faculty and staff of any age and background as a human priority before the nature or progress of their work
  • We value diversity in and inclusion of our students, post-docs, faculty and staff and appreciate their backgrounds and opinions. We believe that diversity in its many dimensions is critical for our Department to achieve its mission in education, research, and to best serve the nation and the world
  • We pledge to better approach the goals stated in MIT’s 2004 pledge to increase diversity, as well as the recommendations of the 2010 report on Faculty and Diversity
  • We remain committed to MIT’s goals of increasing the percentage of faculty, postdocs and students from under-represented groups, and seek to accomplish progress in diversification of our Department and the Civil and Environmental Engineering field more broadly
