Daniel named director of Minority Engineering Programs
Angelitha L. Daniel has been named director of Minority Engineering Programs (MEP) in the College of Engineering at North Carolina State University.
As director, Daniel will oversee all elements of MEP, which works to boost the number of underrepresented minorities entering and graduating from the College. Its programs include recruitment, retention, outreach and student success initiatives. Daniel will work with the NC State University National Minority Engineering Programs Advisory Board, corporate partners and other external constituents to advance the goals of the program.
Daniel had been serving as interim MEP director since 2011. Prior to assuming that role, she served as MEP assistant director for eight years.
“I am delighted that Angie, with her substantial leadership experience with minority engineering programs, has accepted this very important position," said Dr. Jerome Lavelle, associate dean of academic affairs in the College.
Daniel serves as an advisor to the NC State chapters of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. She is a past recipient of the Pride of the Wolfpack Award.
She received her bachelor’s degree in materials science and engineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 1998.
