The Veiled Experience

Sheariah Stevens

The data used for this visualization are from NC State University’s 2019 Campus Climate Survey. For the visualization, Stevens curated data that [1] speaks to the university's interest in promoting diversity and inclusion on campus and [2] explores how the student body engages with these topics and each other. The data from 2019 are the most recent survey data available; however, given that they are two years old, they may or may not be representative of the views of current NC State students. That said, many students that participated in that survey are likely still a part of the current campus community, and so the visualization reflects - at least in part - the thoughts and opinions of current community members. Ultimately, this visualization complements the work of Du Bois in that it serves as a window into the realities of life as a minority and/or underrepresented student in higher education.
