The Program for Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) serves undergraduate students who identify as female (this includes women who are cisgender, trans, of trans experience, etc.) in STEM majors.

WiSE provides resources including social and academic support, leadership & professional development, and a caring community of staff and students. Check out the links below to learn more.

There is no sign-up or joining process to be "WiSE." If a student identifies as female and is majoring in STEM, they are welcomed and encouraged to take part in the resources and opportunities available.
