Oklahoma State University’s (OSU) College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT) is committed to excellence in fostering inclusivity. CEAT’s Diversity and Inclusion Programs began in 1974 and was reestablished in 2010.  The program provides support to recruit, retain and graduate undergraduate and graduate students, including those who are underrepresented and historically marginalized (African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Women, First-Generation, Non-Traditional, Disabled, Veterans, International, and LGBTQ+).  The college welcomes people of all backgrounds, and believes individuality adds value to the OSU CEAT community.  Our mission of inclusivity is to ensure every voice is heard, and to strengthen educational learning and leadership through collaboration.

In 1974, the Council of Partners Advisory Board was formed, consisting of industrial leaders who were committed to providing academic support to underprivileged minority students who are majoring in engineering, architecture and technology.

CEAT and NACME Partnership

National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME) is the largest provider of college scholarships for underrepresented minorities pursuing degrees at schools of engineering. NACME serves as a catalyst to increase the proportion of African American, American Indian, and Latino young women and men in STEM careers inspiring and encouraging excellence in engineering education and career development toward achieving a diverse and dynamic American workforce. CEAT’s Partnership with NACME helps to improve retention of minority engineers. For more information and scholarship opportunities visit
