Description:
This recording was conducted in the Talley Student Union on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the Wolf Tales Last Day of Classes (LDOC) 2017 Open Recording Day. In the recording, Gabrielle Diaz (‘17) and Morgan Sanchez (‘17) discuss: Diaz’s participation in the Summer Transition Program for minority students in engineering as incoming freshman; identifying as part of the Latinx and engineering communities at NC State; academic challenges; places on campus that hold special significance for them, including Welch Dormitory and Mann Hall for Sanchez; Sanchez’s role as a mentor in the Women of Welch Residential Village; being sisters in Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority Inc., and Diaz’s leadership as president; hosting actor Eva Longoria at NC State for a public talk to raise awareness of Latinx issues; Diaz’s role as a mentor in the Minority Engineering Program (MEP); and changes that they wish to see at NC State in the future, including seeing more minorities enter engineering fields. This recording was created with the support of funds made possible through a 2016-2017 Diversity Mini-Grant from the NCSU Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).
