WRRC: Women in Science & Engineering (W.I.S.E.) Program

The WiSE Program aims to center folx with marginalized gender identities (womxn, womxn of color (WOC), Trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary folx, etc.,) in STEM fields by providing a supportive, gender positive environment in which students work together with mentors to achieve their academic and professional goals. WiSE has focused attention on changing the academic environment for folx with marginalized gender identities in STEM fields by researching barriers to their success and developing programs that reduce or eliminate these barriers. Our programs for students focus on participating in their engineering and science education from the first year college through the graduate level. WiSE recruits participants and mentors in the Fall quarter and uses the Winter and Spring quarters to meet and attend socials and professional development sessions planned and facilitated by the WRRC and campus partners. Please email wrrc@ucdavis.edu if you have questions about the program.

Applications are now open for those who would like to serve as Mentors and those who would like to be a Mentee. Expectations for both Mentors and Mentees can be found on their respective applications.
