Multicultural Engineering Program

You are valued. You are supported. You are affirmed. MEP serves to build community for underrepresented and first-generation students through a sense of belonging, academic support, and professional opportunities.

Our hearts go out to the victims of the Club Q incident in Colorado Springs over the weekend and those impacted by this senseless act of violence against the LGBTQ+ community. The Mines Counseling Center is available for any students impacted by the incident. Students can call 303-273-3377 to connect for a time to process. oSTEM has also collected a list of resources available both on and off campus here. Likewise, please refer any student struggling with this incident to Student Outreach and Support (SOS) for tailored referrals and support. In the days to come, please check in with your friends, classmates and coworkers, as we all cope with this unfathomable incident. Because here at Mines, we climb together. You are not alone.

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.

MEP offers the following support for students at Mines:

  • 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!
