Who We Are


Women in Science (WIS) is a group consisting of undergraduate students and faculty within the Mellon College of Science (MCS) that brings together MCS women each month for a meeting with a catered dinner and speaker. Led by Karen Stump, Principal Lecturer / Director of Undergraduate Studies / Director of Laboratories in the Department of Chemistry, and Carrie Doonan, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences, WIS gives its undergraduate members the opportunity to learn more about the possibilities in their future and explore the many options that are available to them in the sciences. Faculty and student members are encouraged to share their wisdom and experiences.

The WIS web site provides a spotlight for MCS women who are succeeding in the sciences at the faculty and undergraduate level, serves as a bulletin board for upcoming events, and provides useful resources.
