WISE began as a way to build community amongst female graduate students in science and engineering. 

WISE supports women graduate students in science, social science, math and engineering. Specifically, we provide professional and social development opportunities by creating a support system and an active dialogue focusing on issues unique to women in science.

Our faculty advisor, Dr. Abbie Richards, is an assistant professor in Chemical and Biological Engineering. You can read more about her and her research interests here!
