On Campus: Women in STEM


    While some science disciplines have begun to reach near parity between women and men, many continue to lag way behind. The numbers of women in technical fields such as IT and computer science are actually declining.  Women in STEM will provide information and encouragement for women who are considering, or are pursuing, careers in science, technology, engineering, or math.
