The goals of the WiSE Program are three fold:
- Increase the number of women studying in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
- Encourage female pursuit of degrees in the STEM fields by creating a forum in which WiSE women can meet and bond over a shared passion for science while providing mutual support and encouragement.
- Provide opportunities for WiSE members to gather with women in STEM and Brown professors to discuss ideas and issues affecting women in STEM fields today.
Events organized to pursue these goals are run for the most part by Student Coordinators, under the direction of the Associate Dean of College for Science, Dean David Targan.
