“A lot of universities like to talk about what they are — and that's cool — but we're going to do something different and tell you what we're not. Which means most importantly we're not big — we're perfectly sized for you and your ambitions. We're not in the big city, but we're right by it. We don't preach, but we do teach, mentor and listen. We don't focus on the past — we're busy making the future. We don't just master technology; we create, debate and explore our relationship with it. Most of all, we're not just a degree. We're your first steps toward that dream job and your pathway toward leading the future. So now that we've told you what we're not we hope that also tells you a lot about what we are — and all that you can become — at Stevens” (Source: Stevens was founded in 1870. Furthermore, “We offer a challenging, tech-infused curriculum in more than 300 areas of study for our 8,000 students” (Source:

Actions Taken

Admissions Policies
  • Stevens has a program known as the “Accessing Careers in Engineering and Science” program, which is a pre-college program that has a purpose of “increasing the number and percentage of underrepresented minority students in STEM study and careers,” including a full scholarship for the program.
  • On June 30, 2023, Steven's President issued a memo in response to the Supreme Court's ruling on affirmative action which reads in part as follows: "As we work in the coming weeks to fully understand and address the implications of this decision on our admissions practices, I reiterate the importance our university places on creating a diverse and welcoming institution that reflects the contributions and diversity of our global society...In the wake of yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, we renew our commitment to recruit, nurture and support a diverse population of students...."
  • The Stevens 2032 Strategic Plan states that it would "[i]nvest in student enrollment practices that strengthen the diversity of the undergraduate and graduate student body across a broad range of attributes and backgrounds."
Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
  • The Stevens 2032 Strategic Plan states that it would "[t]rain faculty, staff and students to have the necessary skill set to influence climate and culture, engender a sense of inclusion, belonging and equity, and implement and participate in inclusive instructional pedagogies."
  • The "Inclusive Workplace Workshop" is a collaborative initiative between the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and School of Business and is "designed and facilitated by Stevens faculty to help employees learn and practice strategies that foster inclusion through the use of critical incidents and collaborative decision-making."
Program and Research Funding
  • One of the "10-Year Targets" of the Stevens 2032 Strategic Plan is described as follows: "Increase the success of Pell Grant, first-generation and underrepresented minority students at least equal to the graduation rate of majority students, while maintaining their level of representation in the undergraduate student population."
  • The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion lists many STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programs that Stevens partners with in order to increase representation of minorities and underrepresented groups in the field.
  • Stevens has a site dedicated to anti-racism resources for faculty. This list includes articles, books, videos, podcasts, and other resources. The list also includes Ibram X. Kendi’s “How to Be an Antiracist” and Kendi’s “An Antiracist Reading List.”
  • Stevens offers numerous DEI workshops for faculty and staff, including workshops titled “Navigating Microaggressions and Bias,” “A Student-Centered Approach to Creating Inclusive Classrooms,” “Understanding Bias: How to Mitigate the Impact on Faculty Careers.”
  • On September 16, 2020, Stevens presented the Excellence Through Diversity Lecture Series, which “introduces ideas and perspectives to increase understanding of the value of diversity and enhance the University's efforts toward inclusive excellence in STEM.”
  • The Stevens Leadership Conference is a "biennial gathering dedicated to reshaping STEM by empowering women and gender minorities, and championing social justice and equity."
Symbolic Actions
  • Stevens created the Intercultural Space, which “is a hub for identity development, social justice education, community-building, empowerment, and allyship on campus.” The purpose of the hub is “to empower Stevens students to create a thriving and inclusive community by cultivating a supportive space for underrepresented students and their allies on campus to foster an understanding of diversity and inclusion.”
  • Stevens is part of the ADVANCE program, which is led with “efforts to increase diversity and inclusion in faculty recruitment, hiring and retention” with the purpose of “ensuring all STEM faculty use inclusive teaching practices and that institutions increase the diversity of their STEM professoriate.”
