Center for Engineering Diversity
Welcome to the John Brooks Slaughter Center for Engineering Diversity (CED) at USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering. We hope that in our center you find a safe space where you can find others who understand you and want you to succeed. Established in 1975, CED exists to assist the Viterbi School of Engineering in the recruitment, retention, and graduation of minoritized backgrounds pursuing engineering degrees and emphasizing the Black, Latinx, and Native American experience at USC.
We have a caring team of 3 full-time staff and 12 student staff who are here to support and advocate for you. Please check out our programs designed to help you make the most out of your time at USC and foster academic, professional, and personal excellence.
CED is located in Ronald Tutor Hall (RTH) 210. Students can access the peer learning lounge 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The collaboration space is equipped with group and individual workstations, computers, and printers.
