- School Information
- Welcome to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, home to 2,100 undergraduate and 100 graduate students majoring in engineering, science or mathematics. As we prepare students for their careers, our emphasis is on a hands-on education where students learn the value of teamwork as well as formulas and equations.
- General Information
- Rose-Hulman requires all first-year students to undergo diversity education in the areas of cultural awareness, implicit bias, and microaggressions. The Institute also leads an optional reading of Robin DiAngelo’s book, “White Fragility,” in which approximately 100 faculty members participate. New workshops on diversity education including anti-racism and equity are to be implemented. Rose-Hulman is planning to introduce cultural intelligence and unconscious bias certification training for faculty. It is also altering its admissions and hiring processes to identify and recruit more minorities.
