The IUP Women in Science, Technology, Engineering,
and Mathematics (STEM) organization will hold its first meeting on Wednesday,
April 23, at 6:30 p.m. in Stright 331.
The club was formed by Computer Science majors Lisa Vatavuk
and Jayde Ferney to help efforts of retaining female students at IUP in
science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors.
The new club, IUP Women in STEM, will function as a
mentoring program. Older students will
be paired with younger students in their field, forming a structure for both
academic support and networking.
The club will also give members an opportunity to
raise awareness of accomplishments made by women in their fields and help club
members prepare for life after graduation from IUP.
More information will be available on Facebook and on Twitter from @IUPWomenInSTEM.
