Professor urges fellow engineers to take action on diversity, equity and inclusion

UF Associate Professor of Civil & Coastal Engineering Dr. David O. Prevatt is inaugural chair of the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ board-level DEI Committee. In a recent column written for STRUCTURE magazine, Prevatt called on structural engineers and their firms to actionably incorporate diversity, equity and inclusion values into their businesses and practice as well as in the training of future structural engineers.

“We issue a distinctly different call,” wrote Prevatt, “inviting the leaders of each committed structural engineering firm to nominate one member to join us and become the catalyst within your organizations.”
