The College of Engineering recognizes the impact of the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month
Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan, a turning point in the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. Pride Month recognizes and celebrates the impact that LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual or allies, and others) individuals have had on history. It also serves as an opportunity to uplift the voices, recognize the culture, and support the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community.
The College of Engineering is honoring Pride Month by recognizing and celebrating members of the LGBTQIA+ community who have made or are currently making remarkable contributions to engineering and related STEM disciplines and inspiring others in the process. We believe that diversity is truly indispensable in the College of Engineering (COE) and that richly varied perspectives and lived experiences enhance creativity and innovation.
