To start the new year, we're taking a look back at some of our favorite Olin stories from 2022!
Frances Haugen '06 is training her sights on equipping the next generation of tech leaders with the tools to make the world a better place.
Engineering for Everyone has two embedded meanings.
First, it means engineering education needs to be for everyone. Today the NSF calls for broadening participation because engineering education systematically excludes large groups of people, to the detriment of individuals, societies, and economies.
Engineering for Everyone also means that engineering as a profession must serve everyone. We need to go beyond a disciplinary perspective of engineering, and beyond the definition of engineering as “using science to solve technical problems.”

From its inception, Olin’s only constant has been our drive to transform how engineering is taught, learned, and perceived. We pursue this goal alongside partners—educators, innovators, and industry leaders—who share our goal to make engineering education sustainable, equitable, and accessible for all.
Evolution is a constant in Olin’s approach. We collaborate with innovators, educators, and partners who share our goal of making engineering education deeply relevant, accessible, and inclusive.
Olin’s campus is a dynamic hub for discovery, exploration, and learning in every dimension—and at every opportunity. We transcend disciplines, break down silos, blend art and science, and push the boundaries of research toward real discovery.
Diversity and equity are fundamental values in how we work at Olin, how we live in community with one another, and how we see the world. We are preparing engineers to play a critical role in creating a more just, equitable, inclusive, and diverse society for all.
People are drawn to Olin because our culture is dynamic, entrepreneurial, and creative. Everyone in our community—students, faculty, and staff—is given the freedom and support to develop their agency, purpose, and a deep sense of self-worth.
