April 2019 DEI Spotlight - Courtney Klee

April 2019 DEI SPOTLIGHT

Name: Courtney Klee

Courtney Klee

Preferred Pronoun: She/Her/Hers

Affiliation/Title: Student

Degree(s): Candidate for Bachelor of Science in Architecture

Home Countries: United States

Language(s) Spoken: English

Gender Identity: Female

Racial Identity/Ethnicity: White

Favorite food: Ice cream

Favorite book and why: I keep The Crossroads of Should and Must by Elle Luna within reach because it reminds me to continue pushing myself to do and to create the things that I really want to do--to follow my must.

Favorite thing to do when not at TC: I love cooking and baking, especially with friends!

DEI Contribution/Highlight: I help to lead the student organization Initiative for Inclusive Design, and over the summer, I completed research on accessibility for the U-M library. I work to design with accessibility in mind in my studio projects and share this knowledge with other colleagues! Within my cohort, I also aim to include every voice and elevate voices other than my own to support others to bring their whole selves to Taubman College.

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? I truly believe that life and learning are enhanced by being surrounded by individuals with different backgrounds, life experiences, and beliefs. Our identity is intertwined into all that we do and by understanding our own and learning from those around us, life and what we create becomes more meaningful and impactful.
