Undergraduate WISP

The Women in Science Program serves and develops students who identify as women, non-binary individuals, and male advocates within the College of Science throughout their undergraduate studies. From the first-year application process to graduation day, WISP exists to strengthen Science student experiences — not only in the lecture hall or lab but through mentoring and networking as well.

As a first-year student in the Women in Science Program (WISP) you would receive the following benefits:

  • You would live in the Women in Science Learning Community in Meredith South Hall (students living outside of the Learning Community but within University Residences can still participate in WISP).
  • You would have tutoring available to you 15 hours/week conveniently located in the University Residences Support Center within Shreve Hall.
  • You would be assigned an upper-class mentor in your same major.  You and your mentor will attend monthly mentoring programs that include dinner and speakers on science-based and life skills-based topics.

If you are interested in joining WISP, simply apply to be part of the College of Science, Women in Science Learning Community.
