Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Clarkson sees all students and employees as Global Citizens. The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Office cultivates this aspect of our campus culture through recruitment and professional development efforts and continuously addressing campus climate and engagement.
Working to be a community with a sense of belonging for all is at the heart of what we do. And, we work to instill an appreciation of culture, diversity and inclusion and highlight the skills to execute these objectives. We believe these attributes make our students successful throughout their careers and around the world.

The Society of Women Engineers is actually the first organization I got involved in when I first came to Clarkson. I was an active member for both my freshman semesters and loved seeing and meeting other women pursuing a STEM education — especially meeting all the seniors who were so close to accomplishing something that I had just embarked on. They held many fun and developmental activities that made me feel confident and prepared for my time at Clarkson. I also got involved in Sister to Sister, which was a nice break from academics and gave me the opportunity to meet more women like me at Clarkson, which was just really comforting!
