The Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) was established at the Colorado School of Mines in 1989. For over 30 years, MEP has played a significant role in promoting the ongoing commitment Mines has to create a more diverse and inclusive learning community. The program enrolls, retains, and graduates underrepresented and first-generation students while building a community of equity, inclusion, and support through our many partnerships and advocacies.

- Academic Support | MEP supports students with tutoring, scholarship assistance, and finding research opportunities.
- Professional Development | MEP hosts skill development workshops, fosters leaders in professional societies, and connects students to industry internships and employment opportunities.
- Student Support | MEP House is open to all students and has computers, printers, school supplies, a student kitchen, and a prayer/meditation room. Come drop in and say hi!

MEP House Hours of Operation:
Many of our communities have recently been impacted by a wave of tragedy both across the US and overseas. MEP stands in solidarity with our students and with those who have been impacted by these horrific acts. We are here for you if you’d like to connect at any point. We will make time and space to talk with students. We care deeply about your safety, wellbeing, and success at Mines.
Mines also has a variety of resources available to help students process difficult or stressful circumstances, including the impact of events such these. Specifically, the Counseling Center is a safe space to process individually or in groups. Students wanting to connect may call 303-273-3377 to make an appointment or to learn about drop-in times (virtual and in-person). Additionally, Mines’ Student Outreach and Support (SOS) provides non-clinical case management services to help students work through complex matters that impact their lives and academic experiences, including coping with the impact of significant community events on wellbeing. Crisis support is always available by calling Colorado Crisis Services at 1-844-493-8255 or text TALK to 38255.
