In recognition of our ongoing efforts to promote and improve diversity and inclusion, the University of Kentucky Pigman College of Engineering received a Bronze Award from the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) in 2019. In addition to the Bronze Award, the college was further recognized as “exemplar.” The distinction came as the result of ASEE’s inaugural Diversity Recognition Program.

According to ASEE’s website, “…the ASEE Diversity Recognition Program was created to publicly recognize those engineering and engineering technology colleges that make significant, measurable progress in increasing the diversity, inclusion, and degree attainment outcomes of their programs.”
