Inclusion – Diversity – Equity – Access

The Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Dallas endeavors to create an environment in which all students feel welcome, and all students are given opportunities to grow in technical knowledge and leadership. CS@UTD supports several events every semester, as well as student organizations, to facilitate inclusion, diversity, equity, and access.


Student Organizations

CS@UTD encourages all students to get involved in student-led groups to broaden their technical horizons, including:

  • Women Who Compute (WWC) is a student-led organization to build community among female students
  • The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) supports the development of women in leadership and engineering fields
  • The National Society of Black Engineers (NBSE) seeks to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
  • The Society for Hispanic professional engineers (SHPE) strives to empower the Hispanic community to realize its fullest potential and to impact the world through STEM awareness, access, support, and development.
  • Association for Computing Machinery at UT Dallas (ACM UTD
  • Artificial Intelligence Society (AIS)
  • Computer Security Group (CSG)

 Many other groups are listed here.

More events and organizations can be found on the UTDallas diversity page.
