The Program for Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) celebrates the thousands of women* (including who are cisgender, trans, of trans experience, non-binary, etc.) who have graduated from Iowa State University in the STEM fields. Regardless of if you participated in WiSE programs or if you graduated before the program started in 1986, you are FOREVER WISE. We hope you will engage with WiSE current undergraduate students and our K-12 outreach programs.


Upcoming WiSE Alumni Event:

  • Live zoom event with new WiSE Director, Dr Kris Kilibarda.
  • Date/Time and zoom link TBD.
