The Carleton University Women in Science and Engineering (CU-WISE) is a group of enthusiastic undergraduate and graduate students who encourage and support women to pursue an education or career in Science and Engineering.
- Teamwork: We will reach our goals with the growth and contribution of each individual, both personally and professionally.
- Respect: We respect the opinions of others, especially when those opinions are different from our own.
- Creativity: We have the freedom to formulate new solutions, approaches and methodologies.
As CU-WISE grows, we strive for the following goals that support our mission, vision, and values.
- Provide a physical and virtual place for women to gather for support, advice, and camaraderie.
- Provide opportunities for current students and faculty - as well as prospective students and faculty - to mentor or be mentored.
- Become an integral part of the faculties of science and/or engineering.
- Brand ourselves with a distinguishable identity that will be well known on campus.
- Continue growing and learning how to further the mission and vision.
- Collaborate with other Carleton organizations and student groups.
- Attend/support outreach activities/programs for elementary and high school students.
- Promote CU-WISE at Carleton recruitment activities.
- Host CU-WISE events pertinent to our mission and vision
