Women Outreach



The Russ College welcomes and supports women studying engineering and technology and is committed to increasing the enrollment of women by improving access, aiding transition from high school, and supporting women through their graduation.

We offer specific programs to encourage women to pursue careers in the field and to support those who study here:

Women in the Russ College are also encouraged to participate in the student chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Members provide mentoring and also participate in academic, social, and service activities — including traveling to the national SWE conference, hosting local Girl Scout and Brownie troops, and other annual events.
