Student Spotlight - Deja Johnson
Deja participated on several ChangeLab projects, including workforce development and the Diversity House. Deja’s workforce development project came up with the idea of EvansvilleWorks, a program that would connect people who chose not to go to college with jobs that do not require a college degree.
Her Diversity House team worked hard to help launch a dedicated space on campus for students of all races, backgrounds, and orientations who wanted to get together, feel welcome, and embrace what makes UE special. Deja also assisted the infant mortality ChangeLab project, which worked to lower this region’s high infant mortality rate. That project was so impressive to Health Department officials, they are considering taking the campaign statewide.
