Women's Center STEMtorship Network

The Women's Center STEMtorship Network is a group mentorship program that aims to build a network of support for undergraduate women in STEM. We believe that by coming together women in STEM can share knowledge and strategies for success while learning in an open and supportive environment.

At the Women’s Center, we understand that gender is a social construct. However, that construct can and does have very real impacts on our lived experiences; including how one moves through their college experience. We want to welcome all students who identify as women including students who identify as genderqueer, non-binary and/or trans-women.

Students who register for STEMtorship Network will be invited to RSVP to monthly events throughout the academic year. These programs will vary in topics and format but will include guest speakers, professional development, and community building. By attending these programs students will have a chance to build community with other STEM majors, network with professionals from on and off campus, and explore strategies for success.

To get involved in the STEMtorship Network please register via the form below by Monday, Oct. 2nd, 2017. All registered members are invited to attend our Fall Kick-Off Event on Tuesday, Oct 10th. More information will be sent to participants regarding this event. This Kick-Off event will allow all members meet each other, connect with campus partners/resources and learn more about our upcoming sessions. Following this event all members will get electronic invites to the monthly meetings and will need to RSVP in order to reserve their spot at that specific event. Members who attend 5 or more STEMtorship Events will receive a commemorative certificate and a special recognition gift from the Women’s Center.

Join us and build a network of community support and shared knowledge that will help you achieve your personal and professional goals!

Registrations are due Monday, October 2nd. You will receive an e-mail confirming your registration by Friday, October 6th.
