a Diverse Campus
Rose-Hulman thrives as its diversity grows. Today's opportunity to share myriad perspectives will be the strength of tomorrow's scientists and engineers.
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is committed to creating a climate which recognizes diversity and the unique contributions that each individual can make to the Rose-Hulman community. We believe that the ability to understand and work cooperatively with people of different backgrounds and experiences will be essential for the future success of our students, our institution and our nation.
We understand that we need to provide our students with the world's best education in engineering, mathematics and science in a diverse environment. In our desire to be the best, we understand that diversity plays an important part in making an impact upon the world in which we live and the development of tomorrow's leaders.
NSBE Senior Weekend
The Office of Admissions in cooperation with the National Society of Black Engineers sponsors NSBE Senior Weekend.
We invite all admitted ethnic students to campus for this two day program that is intended to give the students and their parents a feel for campus life, student life, academics and discuss the atmosphere for ethnic students at Rose-Hulman.
Each program day will begin at 12:00 p.m. on Friday and will end at approximately 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. There are many activities planned for this event including a session with Rose-Hulman students, a tour of campus, question and answer period, panels, movies, games and team building challenges.
We will set up accommodations (double occupancy) at a hotel near campus for the parents of the students at no cost. The program concludes with breakfast on Saturday morning.
The Rose Building Undergraduate Diversity (Rose-BUD) program's goal is to broaden the participation of academically talented students majoring in electrical and computer engineering. The program has a strong networking and career development component. Rose-BUD scholars have received as much as $10,000 as part of the National Science Foundation's efforts to encourage more students towards careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
ALUMNI IN THE NEWS
Rose-Hulman alumni Anthony Broadnax (second from right), President of Broadnax Enterprises, talks with Rose-Hulman engineering students as they look at storm drains in a sweeping project to help an Emerson Indiana neighborhood.
Broadnax and his firm are revitalizing the Emmerson neighborhood project by project. His innovative, win-win game plan uses these projects as a way to give Rose-Hulman students civil engineering experiences while keeping the projects affordable for the community. "The functions of that program are to have [students] work for a client and produce and provide a full-scale technical report based on a real problem," said Broadnax. "They're doing very high quality work." According to the students involved, Broadnax has helped them see how they can make a difference.
