Diversity committee

The Department of Civil Engineering strives towards a welcoming culture that will make all students, staff and visitors feel at home, irrespective of origin, ethnicity, language, gender, religious and political conviction, social class, disability or sexual orientation. This includes creating a multicultural environment that enables a variety of cultures to meet and learn from one another.

The diversity committee of the Department of Civil Engineering meet regularly with the aim to:

  • Improve the racial diversity profile of both students and staff at the Department;
  • Improve the gender profile of both students and staff at the Department;
  • Improve the mutual understanding of diversities amongst students and staff;
  • Improve accessibility for disabled students.
