Our Mission  

Physics, mathematics, and computer science are of growing importance in our society and culture, yet women continue to be underrepresented in these fields both nationally and here on campus. The purpose of this group is to create a welcome and inclusive environment by providing a supportive forum for women students and faculty to discuss issues related to being female in these male dominated fields. We also hope to increase participantsí awareness of career opportunities and introduce them to female role models in these fields.
