Diversity at NJIT

CDS Diversity Statement

A core value of NJIT is that our community of faculty, staff and students work and learn in an environment that celebrates our diversity and supports all those who are a part of the NJIT family. As outlined in NJIT’s strategic plan 2020 Vision, we recognize the need to respect differences and foster inclusiveness that enriches our campus culture and extends into the surrounding region.  NJIT draws students from over 100 countries and conducts extensive outreach to women and underrepresented populations in STEM disciplines. We are proud that Diverse: Issues in Higher Education has recognized NJIT as a top producer of minority STEM graduates, including a top 100 producer of Engineering degrees awarded to African-American and Hispanic students. In addition, NJIT enrolls 25% females in its 11,400 student enrollment, an outcome from our extensive pre-college programs which contribute to expansion of educational opportunities for young urban women and men. Career Development Services (CDS) works collaboratively with student groups such as the National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, the Society of Women Engineers, and the Veteran Students Association. We encourage all students to seek professional opportunities by strengthening their job search knowledge and skills and taking advantage of the resources that we have to offer.
