Women in Sciences & Engineering (WISE)

The 2024 WISE Program is open for registration!

Created at Penn State in 1994, the WISE Institute represents an innovative approach to cross-disciplinary interaction among engineers, humanists, scientists, and social scientists to promote the participation of women in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The primary mission of the WISE Institute is to encourage the entry and success of women in the STEM fields. The Institute creates an environment furthering gender equity by coordinating our efforts throughout Penn State; creating opportunities for women of diverse backgrounds to thrive in the STEM fields; mentoring individuals; and promoting institutional and cultural change.
