Human Centered Design & Engineering students Sourojit Ghosh and Austin Lee are named to the 2024 cohort of the Husky 100.

The Husky 100 is a program that annually recognizes 100 students across the UW's three campuses for their outstanding work and extracurricular achievements. "The one thing they share is that they actively connect what happens inside and outside of the classroom and apply what they learn to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for the future," wrote UW Provost Tricia R. Serio in an announcement. "Through their coursework, research, volunteer and leadership efforts, internships and jobs, they have created their own unique Husky Experience."

My commitment to Inclusive Community is exemplified by my integration of human-centered methods and values into a wide range of courses, centered around a pedagogy of care and radical inclusion, delivering equitable course experiences based on individual student needs, without compromising on collective experience. As an aspiring professor and research mentor, I am grateful for the opportunities afforded to me by HCDE and the UW towards practicing my values, and hope to repay their demonstrable faith in me by mentoring future generations of students.

Through classes, on-campus organizations, personal projects and internships I have experienced at the UW, the people and friends around me created an environment where my opinions and perspectives were valued. This feeling of belonging played a huge role in my learning and growth. Being surrounded by such positive energy is why community has been the core of every project I’ve worked on and I’m excited to continue using the power of design to bring people together.


These three join 19 other HCDE students who have been named to the Husky 100 since the program began in 2016. View the complete list of HCDE students recognized in the Husky 100 over the years.
