Chemical Engineering Diversity Statement

The Stanford University Department of Chemical Engineering is committed to fostering a diverse community in which all individuals are welcomed, respected, and supported to achieve their full potential. We value many different aspects of identity; this may include but is not limited to culture, socioeconomic and class differences, educational background, race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, life experiences, age, hobbies, and interests. Our commitment to diversity is an essential part of training graduate students to be leaders and innovators, pushing the boundaries of life, energy, and environmental sciences. The research, perspective, creativity of thought, and passion that students contribute creates an impact both inside and outside of the lab. The teaching and research of our faculty provide opportunities to engage deeply in concerns related to diversity in every sphere of life. Diversity at Stanford, in its myriad forms, is essential to maintaining our educational excellence. Diversity leads to better ideas, more informed decisions, and enriches the learning and research environment.
