Multicultural Week celebrated at PSC
Deepak Mehra, assistant professor of engineering and mathematics at Potomac State College of West Virginia University (WVU), recently presented India: Stereotypes vs. Reality to students at the College in celebration of Multicultural Week. Students learned about the various landscapes, culture, religions, economy and political systems of India. Mehra grew up in northern India and came to the United States to earn his master’s degree.
“I chose West Virginia for the beautiful mountains and WVU for its great engineering program,” said Mehra, adding, “After several years of graduate research work, I knew that I wanted to work in academia in West Virginia so I could give back to the University, the state and the nation that became my home.” Students were also treated to various desserts from around the world. The event was sponsored by the PSC Social Justice Council and Dining Services.
