WiSTEM is broadening participation in STEM across campus and beyond

Women in STEM (WiSTEM) is an academic interest group that is broadening participation in STEM by creating an inspired and varied community of confident STEM leaders. 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.

WiSTEM programs are open to all students.
