Diversity & Culture of Inclusion Overview

To be successful, everyone needs to encourage diversity and a culture of inclusion.

CISTAR is dedicated to creating a diverse, inclusive center where members from all backgrounds are ready to participate and lead in a global energy economy.  At CISTAR, everyone in the center is responsible for helping with our diversity and inclusion goals:

  • To broaden the participation of groups underrepresented in STEM fields in CISTAR and, ultimately, in energy fields;
  • To create an inclusive center that supports, values, respects, and rewards all its members to their fullest potential; and,
  • To prepare culturally intelligent, global engineers.

CISTAR members also follow up by helping us with recruitment and by being outstanding mentors to undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds.  In fact, our summer programs are largely successful because of the quality of our mentors and the care and attention they pay to help prepare the next generation of engineers.  Learn more about CISTAR's culture of inclusion:
