Diversity and Inclusion at Tandon

Diverse, inclusive, and equitable environments are not tangential or incidental to excellence, but rather are constitutive of it.

Such environments invite and foster a wider range of experience, knowledge, and perspectives, which in turn fosters a more successful, creative, and innovative institution, as well as teams or groups within that institution.

NYU Global Inclusion and Diversity


"engineering against uniformity"

The NYU Tandon School of Engineering is committed to supporting and enhancing inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity (IDBE) among students, faculty, and staff, in the service of excellence.

That means supporting within our community:

   Being@NYU — measuring our progress in advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion

   Center for Multicultural Education and Programs (CMEP) — offers educational and social events, programs, and resources

We are creating an environment in which everyone can feel welcomed, respected, and supported. We want to be effective allies of Black and Latino students, the LGBT community, aspiring women STEM professionals, and all other groups who might feel marginalized or barred from the STEM world. We acknowledge that true allyship takes uncomfortable reckonings, constant vigilance, and above all, accountability, but we consider it imperative.


We vow to be a staunch and active ally of Black and Latino STEM scholars and industry professionals, and we are conducting the ongoing work, vigilance, and in-depth discussion required. The Black and Latino Men @ Tandon (BLMT) Initiative is an important component of this effort and the concrete, measurable actions we are taking.


We vow to be a place where women scientists, technologists, and engineers are heard and supported. We know that it’s impossible for a society to thrive if it ignores the talents and skills of a large segment of its members, and we won’t rest until women, who make up half the world’s population, have the education they need to hold half the world’s STEM jobs
