Office for Women in Science and Engineering
The Office for Women in Science and Engineering (OWISE) has a goal of creating a culture of success for women in engineering and science. Housed in the Office of the Dean, the OWISE Office and programs aim to improve the climate, increase retention and provide professional development and leadership opportunities for engineering and science faculty and students.
The OWISE Office also administers the National Science Foundation ADVANCE PAID grant for the College of Engineering and Science and its ADVANCEing Faculty Program.
Louisiana Tech University's College of Engineering & Science is now a member of the National Center for Women and Information Technology Academic Alliance.
To learn more about issues affecting the success of women in engineering and science, check out this presentation on "Overcoming Bias."
The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) has featured Dr. Jenna Carpenter, the OWISE faculty sponsor, in the following video about the benefits of MAA membership.
The Association of Women in Science recently created a webinar series for their 40th anniversary. Dr. Jenna Carpenter, the OWISE faculty sponsor, is featured in two of the six webinar videos (embedded below).
A repository of PowerPoint presentations and weblinks is available online for graduate students who would like to learn more on profession development topics.
