Women in Science

Mission

The mission of the Women in Science is to provide tools of success for bright young female scientists and professionals in a collaborative environment. Women in Science engages in academic activities that enhance educational success, research learning experiences, mentoring, and service learning and community-based activities. Women in Science fosters an environment of academic and professional development and provides a nurturing atmosphere for personal growth to female School of Science students and faculty at IUPUI.

The Women in Science House (WISH) is an on-campus residential living and learning community for outstanding female science students of various class years and majors. 

Organization and the Four Branches of the Program

Women in Science was established in 2012. Women in Science is composed of three organizations for undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty. Along with the three bodies, there is a Residential Based Learning Community, WISH, to further support undergraduate students.

Advisory Board and Executive Board

The Advisory Board of the Women in Science Program serves as an external support and leadership body for the Women in Science Program. The Advisory Board consists of two female faculty, two School of Science alumni, and four community leaders. The board members are dedicated females scientist and professionals with the passion to promote participation of women in the STEM fields. The Executive Board works closely with the Advisory Board to develop and implement program wide initiatives. The Executive Board is composed of two representatives from each of the four branches of Women in Science.

Undergraduate Women in Science

The goal of the Undergraduate Women in Science Council (UWIS) is to aid women in achieving a more enriching undergraduate experience through service, academic and professional resources, leadership opportunities, and a supportive community of women that share an interest for science. UWIS was founded in 2012 with the mission of instilling passion and providing women in the IUPUI science community with valuable opportunities during their undergraduate careers.

The Undergraduate Women in Science Council upholds the following core beliefs:

  • Empower women to engage a more active role in the science fields.
  • Provide academic and professional resources to help women excel.
  • Instill community involvement through service.
  • Enhance undergraduate experience by providing social opportunities and nurturing a passion for science.
