The goal of this work is to highlight the diversity of the Columbia Engineering alumni community. The first is the development of a website designed to showcase the diversity of engineering students that have long been a part of the Columbia Engineering community. This will be a dedicated page that archives the histories of Black and Latino/a identifying alumni through historical and firsthand accounts. The second is a keynote event that brings alumni of color to campus to share their narratives with the current Columbia community in order to bridge relationships and ties through a shared common experience. 

This project was funded through the Addressing Racism: A Call to Action for Higher Education initiative of the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement.
