The goals of the WiSE Program are three fold:
- Increase numbers of women in the sciences by holding events and providing speakers to generate interest in the sciences.
- Encourage retention of women in academics and the sciences.
- Provide forums and resources to discuss ideas and issues affecting women in scientific careers.
Events organized to pursue these goals are run for the most part by Student Coordinators, under the direction of the Science Center Program Coordinator, Jodie Gill, and the Science Center Director, Dean David Targan.
