Women in STEM Experience
WiSE (Women in STEM Experience) was born from within the University’s
Graduate School Tide Together initiative that seeks to support women in
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) through mentorship and networking in the hopes of narrowing the
existing gender gap in STEM studies and careers.
Since its inception,
WiSE has become its own stand-alone initiative with the support of
multiple departments on campus. Through WiSE and Tide Together, women
studying science and math related fields are placed with a Graduate or
Faculty mentor to help them develop skills in professionalism and in
their field of study. In a further effort to support its participants,
WiSE has created “Pathways for Success” as an opportunity for students
to meet with fellow scholars and professionals while learning to
navigate science and math related fields and graduate programs.
The mission is to serve student organizations, programs, and departments
in their efforts to recruit, promote, and support women in the STEM.
WISE shares resources, facilitates communication, and supports the UA
is actively seeking involvement in new events to promote women and STEM
