Celebrating Diversity: Sadie Khalil
Women's History Month: March
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.
Q: Describe a bit about your personal and/or professional background.A: I am currently a sophomore majoring in Civil Engineering with a double minor in Environmental Engineering and Mathematics. I am originally from Gilbert, AZ and moved to Nebraska two years ago to become a student athlete at the collegiate level and attend UNL College of Engineering.
Q: What is your role in the College of Engineering – and what do you enjoy (love!) about what you are doing?A: As a Civil Engineering major, I have found a real passion for serving my community and that is why I love being a Civil Engineering student. I am looking forward to getting more involved in Environmental Engineering because I would like to work within that concentration in the future.
As a student in the College of Engineering, I love getting involved in programs and clubs with my peers. I am proud to be apart of the Multicultural Engineering Program where I get to interact with other diverse engineering students that have the same aspirations that I do. I am also on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the CEE Department where I get to be hands on in trying to improve the diversity and inclusion within the college as a voice for fellow students.
