Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and Engineering

The Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and Engineering (CEOSE) was established by Congress in 1980. It is charged with advising the National Science Foundation (NSF) on policies and activities to encourage full participation by women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. The membership of this committee consists of eminent scientists and engineers from academia and private industry.

CEOSE envisions a nation in which every segment of the population is empowered and enabled to participate fully in the science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET) enterprise. CEOSE will advise and guide NSF to ensure the fulfillment of this vision by promoting an SMET advancement and dissemination paradigm that is inclusive of all citizens, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or disability status.
