Women in Science and Engineering (WISE)

The Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) is an organization of graduate students, faculty, postdoctoral fellows and staff at Texas A&M University.

WISE began in the Department of Chemistry when a handful of women graduate students gathered to discuss the alarming dropout rate among their fellow female students. An informal survey identified the isolation that many of these women felt within the department and also pointed out issues that contributed to the uncomfortable environment often encountered by women entering nontraditional fields. These conditions resulted in an unusually large number of women leaving without a degree, especially those who were to have entered their second year of study. Armed with this information, WISE set out to improve conditions on campus, and from this small beginning, WISE has grown to include women from all technical and scientific Colleges on campus.

WISE meets monthly on the Texas A&M University campus. Join us!
