Women in STEM

Women in STEM at Duquesne University (WIS@DU) promotes and supports women in basic and applied sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics career paths at Duquesne University. The goals of WIS@DU are as follows:

  • Recognize Duquesne women in science for their scientific, teaching and community achievements.
  • Advocate for women's issues in STEM fields at Duquesne and in the broader community.
  • Identify positive strategies for women at all professional stages to navigate successful STEM and health sciences careers.
  • Provide a strong network of women in science who are willing to support and serve as role models for both graduate students and their peers.

WIS@DU hosts public workshops to discuss professional and personal development, as well as provide opportunities for women in the Duquesne University science community. See Women in STEM Collections!

We welcome participation from all members of the community who support Women in STEM.
