February: Black History Month
Did you know?
Black History Month celebrates achievements by African Americans and recognizes their role in U.S. history. It is also known as African American History Month and developed from “Negro History Week,” which was the idea of historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has designated the month of February as Black History Month. MORE
In the College of Engineering, all are welcome. To better share the stories of how our faculty, staff, students and alumni are diverse in their many varying forms, we are celebrating various heritage and other nationally recognized months. This recognition will include stories about those in our greater engineering community, as well as sharing events and other opportunities.
