After careful deliberation, The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers would like to officially endorse Isaiah Hamilton for DSG presidency for the 2023-2024 academic year. We believe his pillars of Inclusivity, Mindfulness, and Humility align closely with our own organization’s pillars and vision for the Duke community. His ambitions for a multicultural building resonated all around our board, as it would establish a strong sense of community and a permanent space for Latinx groups at Duke. SHPE did not endorse the recent movement of La Casa, and we firmly believe Isaiah would expand our voices so concerns such as these are heard more clearly in future decisions so that our community is not negatively impacted. Considering our group’s large STEM makeup, we admire his commitment to analyze the engineering and science curriculum through surveys, with the goal to expand program options and specializations.
