Four ME Students Win DEI Awards
CSE Excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion awards recognize a nominee in each category who has consistently engaged with DEI efforts, demonstrated exemplary leadership, or has created a long-lasting impact in pursuit of a more diverse, equitable and inclusive climate within the College of Science & Engineering. Four mechanical engineering students took home awards this year! Congratulations to these hard-working students.
CSE Undergraduate Student Awards
- Sophia Clark, Elizabeth Hokanson, Moira Miller, Mechanical Engineering
Sophia Clark, Elizabeth Hokanson, and Moira Miller are being recognized together, although they have accomplished a tremendous amount individually. As individuals they are notable women in the college who lead in their field and give back to the overall CSE community. They are presidents, accomplished engineers, and strong advocates for women in engineering. As collaborators they organized an influential event to break down the stigma surrounding the less glamorous side of engineering, machining, and manufacturing. Their event, Women in Machining, offered those that may be intimidated by the Machine Shop an opportunity to have hands-on experience that is valuable to their academic and professional experience."
- Dani Alfonzo Mudoy, Mechanical Engineering
"Daniela Alfonzo Mudoy is recognized as an exemplary leader working to uplift other people belonging to communities that are often underrepresented in the STEM field. Like many of our other recipients, Dani has often found herself as an outlier in the classroom and student group spaces. However, because of her leadership with kindness, confidence, and consideration for every voice, Dani has spurred a shift in those spaces and an increase in underrepresented folks on her teams. Dani has provided meaningful conversations and representation for other BIPOC women in CSE."
