Women and men enter the University of Michigan with similar backgrounds in mathematics and science, yet far fewer women than men graduate with majors in the sciences. WISE has many programs and activities to support undergraduate women, and they are open to all students regardless of gender identity.
Workshops, Events, Panels and Programs
Incoming freshmen are identified by the WISE Program as potential science majors by their expressed interests and/or backgrounds. These students are invited to participate in periodic workshops, events, panels and programs focusing on careers in science, engineering, or mathematics and on successfully navigating the University. To receive event notification and opportunities, add yourself to WISE-Ugrad on MCommunity.
WISE Employment and Volunteer Opportunities
From volunteering to serve on our advisory board, to serving on panels, to working with pre-college students in our summer camps, WISE has many opportunities for students to gain leadership experience and to support women in science and engineering.

WISE Residential Program (WISE RP)
The WISE Residential Program is a living-learning experience for first and second year students majoring in science, engineering or mathematics. Located in Mosher-Jordan residence hall, the program provides networks, study groups, sections of first year classes, mentoring, and support. Initially funded with University moneys and a grant from the fund to improve Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE), this program has recently been honored by the National Science Foundation with a “Recognition Award for the Integration of Research and Education.” (RAIRE).
