WiSTEM is broadening participation in STEM across campus and beyond

Women in STEM (WiSTEM) is broadening participation in STEM by creating an inspired and curious community of confident STEM leaders. As a university academic interest group, WiSTEM leads exemplary and nationally recognized pre-college and undergraduate student STEM programs with a longstanding history such as STEM Girl Day at UT AustinHigh School Camps, and the WiSTEM Living Learning Community that inspire, connect, and support students in STEM majors across campus and beyond.

WiSTEM’s university-wide outreach, recruiting, and retention STEM programs for pre-college and undergraduate STEM students are designed to increase STEM identity, self-efficacy, and a sense of belonging and lead to increased undergraduate retention/persistence, graduation rates, advancement to graduate school, and persistence in the STEM workforce.

WiSTEM programs are open to all students of any gender.
