University Ethics Scholars

Elite STEM schools, such as Mines, are uniquely situated to produce responsible engineers and scientists.EAC aims to develop an environment where students and faculty work together to produce graduates who are sought-after leaders and moral exemplars in STEM. Recent initiatives:

  • Researching and Developing Best Practices for Responsible Conduct of Research training
  • Updating the Mines Academic Misconduct processes
  • Sponsoring/coaching the Mines Ethics Bowl Team
  • Entering into institutional partnerships, with, for example, the Association for Professional and Practical Ethics
  • Providing guest lectures for STEM courses
  • Establishing an Advisory Board to improve our understanding ethical issues embedded in the practice engineering and science

EAC is dedicated to cultivating a culture of both rigorous academic training and innovative activities and pedagogies.

Mines Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP)

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.

Payne Institute for Public Policy

The Payne Institute for Public Policy at Colorado School of Mines is in a unique position to serve as a nexus for high-quality, data-driven, solutions-oriented research and dialogue needed to inform energy and environmental policy at this critical moment. The Payne Institute can harness the faculty and student body of an institution with deep roots in mining and petroleum engineering, but also with superb programs and longstanding relationships spanning renewable energy, water purification, civil and environmental engineering, materials science and other areas. Mines has an unmatched track record in solving tough scientific and engineering problems across the gamut of energy and environmental fields. The university enjoys a hard-earned reputation as an unbiased problem-solver in disciplines often at odds in the energy-environment discussion; the university tagline, a marriage of the words “Earth” “Energy” and “Environment,” is in fact an accurate reflection of our expansive and growing purview.

Society of Women Engineers (SWE) at Mines

The national Society of Women Engineers was established in 1950 by a group of women who wanted to make their way into professions that did not necessarily welcome them. Their goal was not to agitate but rather to have the opportunity to develop their abilities, give expression to their potential and to contribute to society. Today, SWE’s mission is to inspire women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity.

Pascal Center

The Professional and Scholar Communities Applied Learning (PASCAL) Center works to develop, advance, and steward scholarship communities and professional development at Mines. The PASCAL Center directly manages scholarship communities, promotes and programs professional development opportunities with campus partners, and meaningfully engages with alumni and donors. Our center’s efforts advance Mines@150 aspirations to actively support community, scholarship, professional development, engagement and applied learning for all students at Mines.

Sustainable Energy at Mines (SE@M)

SE@M intends to create and support a community of people focused on learning about and shifting the landscape of renewable and sustainable energy. In order to meet the needs and challenges of the energy transition, we need as many energy professionals as possible to be involved in sustainable energy – engineers, geologists, economists, computer scientists, policy makers and more. Through this program, we recognize what Mines students already do and we support, encourage, and make it easier for more students to find their path in sustainable energy.
