Resources will be added here organized for faculty, staff, and administrators at all types of institutions. Additional content will be coming soon!

Please share your best resources by visiting

The ASEE Diversity Committee invites members to submit up to three “Best of the Best” diversity resources -- links to journal articles, websites, and white papers that provide practical guidance on actions to recruit, retain, develop, and advance diverse students and faculty/instructors in engineering education, engineering technology education, and the engineering profession.

Please note that we seek resources to inform practice in all areas highlighted by ASEE’s definition of diversity (i.e. the inclusion of individuals that represent variations in gender, race, ethnic background, disability, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, nationality and other non-visible differences).
