The purpose of the PEERs CBI was to discuss the PEERs project’s impact on diversity in engineering and identify collaborations, action items, and best practices to further support diversity in engineering. Participants included student services leaders, administrators, faculty, and students from the College of Engineering as well as other organizations on campus.

Broad issues that were discussed included:

  • activities of the PEERs program,
  • experiences of PEERs leaders,
  • changes at the UW over the last 4 years with respect to diversity, and
  • future steps toward creating a more welcoming and equitable campus.
