Who is WiSE?


As Coordinators for WiSE, students take on leadership roles, are enthusiastic, motivated and are excited about working with faculty as well as students. These positions require students to be able to engage with and provide information from the Dean's Office to student volunteers. There is also the need to promote cooperation between Coordinator Groups as well as between DUGs/other student groups.

If you would like to do more for Women in Science and Engineering here at Brown? Do you enjoy planning events spreading your enthusiasm for science? If you do, you are encouraged to apply to become a WiSE Coordinator! Open positions are posted each Spring on the Student Employment website.  Email WiSE now to find out other ways to get involved, like planning events, writing questions for the Athena Science Challenge, and more.
