Updates from the Women in STEM Committee

The Commission for Women's Committee for Women in STEM supports programming to promote and strengthen resources for female faculty and students in STEM fields.

Updates on the 2016 Research Symposium:

The 2016 Second Annual Women in STEM Research Symposium will be on Friday, April 15, 2016, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Min H. Kao Building. This year’s symposium will feature research presentations, a keynote speaker, panel discussion, and new for this year, a career fair.

Updates on Recruiting:

Membership has grown by over five times since May 2015, and the Committee now includes 75 students, representing 28 STEM departments.

The Committee is collaborating with Women in Physics, SYSTERS: Women in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), Society for Women Engineers (SWE), and Undergraduate Research Students’ Association (URSA).

Updates on Mentoring:

Apply online to become a mentor or mentee. Each mentee will be matched with multiple mentors, to allow for the best fit for each person. Mentors will be female undergraduate students in STEM who will receive advice and help from female students in graduate STEM fields.
