The faculty, students, and staff of the University of Michigan Department of Aerospace Engineering are committed to a department culture that supports and celebrates each of our members in their studies and their work. We know that excellence and diversity go hand-in-hand. Only with a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff – diversity of race, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, skin color, socioeconomic status, physical and mental challenges faced – can Michigan Aero be the leaders and best.
Whether you are a student, an educator, a discoverer, an innovator, a technician, an administrator – or any combination of those – we value what makes you you. Please click here to see a list of faculty, staff and student diversity, equity, and inclusion resources.
Through outreach activities, we aim to help a new, diverse generation of students share our excitement for aircraft, spacecraft, the science and technology behind them, and the ways they can improve the world. Through diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs in the department, we aim to create and foster the climate we aspire to: one where everyone, without prejudice, is valued and supported.
The Aerospace Department DEI and Outreach Committees comprise students, faculty, and staff leaders. We work to support the University DEI strategic plan, and that of the College of Engineering. In particular, we work to forward the DEI College strategic objectives in our department:
