Mission: The mission of the WISE RP is to recruit, support, and retain a diverse population of students in the science, mathematics, engineering, and technology fields; to link students with resources and opportunities that will support their academic and personal pursuits; to develop relationships among students with similar interests while building a community based on mutual respect and affirmation of diversity; and to enhance students’ undergraduate experiences by providing engaging cultural and educational opportunities.
Vision: Our charge as a community is to be an exemplar for other STEM living and learning communities (LLCs). The WISE-RP serves as a catalyst for transformation! It is a space that affirms and celebrates difference, and empowers change agents. The WISE RP team strives to ensure community members leave the experience with increased self-efficacy, enhanced leadership skills, and a greater sense of how they hope to make an impact on their respective fields of study.
