Women in Science and Engineering Mentoring Initiatives

The Women in Science and Engineering program at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Center for Research on Women and Gender reaches out to girls and young women from grade school through the undergraduate level to work with community organizations and local businesses. The program works to attract girls and young women to math and science, provide science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) tutoring for pre-college women to improve their college proficiency scores, and implement a peer mentoring program for undergraduate women in STEM majors.
