IGE Grantee Voices

I was motivated to create the GREATS program from my personal experiences as a first-generation Latina navigating academia and higher education within engineering. My hope is that this program has a positive impact on the success of graduate students, and more broadly helps inform graduate programs at other institutions on a holistic approach to their professional development.
