The Center for Inclusion, Diversity, Excellence, and Advancement (IDEA Student Center) at the Jacobs School of Engineering is committed to fostering a supportive environment for diverse engineering students at UC San Diego. The IDEA Center values and honors diverse experiences and we believe diversity is integral to excellence. We are a student-centered office that serves pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate engineering students. The Center is a hub for student engagement, academic enrichment, personal/professional development, leadership and community involvement, and a respectful learning environment for all. Our efforts are grounded in a commitment to ensure that UCSD engineering students reflect the richly diverse global community and that we foster an environment that prepares all engineering students to be fully engaged, technological leaders and well-rounded citizens.
