Diversity at the Watson School

Mission Statement

Binghamton University's Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science is strongly committed to cultivating and sustaining an educational and employment environment that is diverse in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, interests, abilities, and perspectives. The Watson School values diversity as a strength critical to its educational mission, and expects every member of our community to contribute to an inclusive and respectful culture for all. The Watson School seeks to create and sustain learning environments where differences and similarities are valued and respected, and all students, especially women and underrepresented students, are included and empowered to excel in engineering education.

If you're interested in supporting any of these programs, please contact Monica Majors or you can donate directly to the Watson School Fund for Diversity Initiatives.
