Microaggression presentation well received
Assistant Professor Katie Driggs-Campbell led a presentation on micro-aggressions faced by engineering students. Her talk covered the often unintentional discriminatory behavior faced during graduate studies. The presentation sparked an important conversation amongst students, faculty, and staff about the role they play in creating a welcoming environment for not only graduate students, but for everyone. The take-away from the presentation was that, regardless of intent, everyone should be considerate of how their words may affect others.
