Integrated Learning-Living Communities

Women in Science and Engineering

If you are a student interested in STEM fields, then WISE is the place for you. The Women in Science and Engineering Integrated Living and Learning Community (WISE) is a community of learners who take classes together, live together, and have fun together. It is designed to advance women in STEM by encouraging an inclusive community where all students, regardless of gender, can participate and feel welcome.

The shared courses will provide a platform for collaborative academic exploration and discussion.  In the WISE ILLC, you will interact with science and engineering faculty, upper- level students, and professionals.  You will be surrounded by other students with interest in science and engineering and experience a support system to help foster success and community.  Plus, it’s a lot of fun. Through the WISE ILLC, you will build personal and professional networks that will last a lifetime.

Students: Open to all STEM majors such as sciences, mathematics, engineering and health science, regardless of gender.
