Continuing to Celebrate the College's Class of 2020: Throughout the summer, each of our newsletters will highlight two individuals from this exceptional group of students. Today, we're happy to introduce DuJaun Kirk and Dylan Van Sickell.

DuJaun Kirk, Visual Arts & Technology '20

Recently featured in an ABC News' segment and a Stevens' news article, DuJaun Kirk is graduating with a major in visual arts and technology and a minor in marketing. A series of portraits and interviews, his capstone project Blasculinity is now on view at

"Masculinity and mental health in black men are topics that are disregarded not only in the black community but also in society," says Kirk. "Contrary to these stereotypes, black men are delicate beings like any other flower that exists in the world, and these stereotypes cause harm to the mental health of black men."

Dylan Van Sickell, Social Science '20

Graduating from the social science program with a minor in medical humanities, Dylan Van Sickell used his final year at Stevens to research discrepancies between the rates of veteran suicide in different states. In his Innovation Expo presentation, Van Sickell described his analysis and its resultant algorithm that can help states reduce instances of veteran suicide.

Following graduation, Van Sickell plans to enter the U.S. Army as a Second Lieutenant in the Active Duty Infantry.
