Black, Hispanic, and Native American college students and school are largely underrepresented in environmental engineering applications in the USA.
A pathway for growing variety and neighborhood participation within the environmental engineering self-discipline is proposed within the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Engineering Science.
As a neighborhood, environmental engineering professors should study all facets of educational establishments to fight systemic racism, together with instructing, analysis and college administration. This text presents a strategic plan for increasing the horizons of scholars and fostering college careers in a means that advances our mission.”
