Women in Science and Engineering (WISE)

The purpose of WISE is to serve as a platform for female students enrolled in the College of Science and Engineering and/or the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

One avenue to achieve these objectives is by showcasing research done at Winona State University by participating in various research symposiums, providing opportunities to network with career professionals towards career goals, and collaborate with other WSU student organizations.
