Women in STEM (WiSTEM) is closing the STEM gender gap by creating an inspired and diverse community of confident STEM leaders. Sitting within the UT Austin Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE) administrative unit, WiSTEM leads exemplary and nationally recognized pre-college and undergraduate student STEM programs with a longstanding history such STEM Girl Day at UT Austin, high school camps and the Living Learning Community that inspire, connect, and support students in STEM majors across campus and beyond.
WiSTEM’s university-wide outreach, recruiting and retention STEM programs for pre-college and undergraduate STEM students are designed to increase STEM identity, self-efficacy, and a sense of belonging and lead to increased undergraduate retention/persistence, graduation rates, advancement to graduate school, and persistence in the STEM workforce.
In collaboration with the Cockrell School of Engineering, College of Natural Sciences, Jackson School of Geoscience, School of Information, and other campus, community, and corporate partners, WiSTEM is excited to partner with YOU and other STEM role models as we create our community, expand our reach, and close the gender gap.
WiSTEM is made possible by the generous support of corporate, community, campus, and alumni partners.
