Wood Sharon

As one of the world’s leading engineering schools, the Cockrell School is 100% committed to building an environment that is free of hate, racism, and intolerance, and where everyone is supported and valued. I want to make it absolutely clear to each and every member of our community: you belong here. You have earned your place at Texas Engineering.

I call on everyone — from our extraordinary students to our renowned researchers — to join us in the fight for equality and help us build a more accepting and inclusive Cockrell School community.

Hook 'em,
Dean Sharon L. Wood
Cockrell School of Engineering

Be an Ally

In the Cockrell School, You Belong Here is not a program or a campaign. There is no start or end date. And there is no sign-up sheet. Rather, it is an unwavering assertion — of a belief, a truth and a promise — that captures and defines our sustained commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. It is a statement of support for all members of our community, no matter who they are, where they’re from or what they look like.

Show your support, and become an ambassador for change.
