Eligibility:
WiSE is available for any female-identifying first-year student who is majoring in a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) discipline.
Description:
The Program for Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) is a university department on campus focused on supporting female-identifying undergraduate students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) majors at Iowa State. From encouraging girls to consider STEM majors to empowering undergraduate students to thrive in STEM careers, WiSE advocates for diversity and inclusion throughout the science and engineering community.

WiSE residential clusters offers a community for female-identifying undergraduate students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) majors. Students have the option of living with other first-year female students enrolled in STEM majors where women remain underrepresented.

Offered in conjunction with the ISU Department of Residence, the WiSE residential clusters places participants on one of ten residence hall floors with 19 other undergraduate women in science and engineering. Options include the Union Drive, Richardson Court, and South Campus Neighborhoods:

- Friley: Henderson, Pennell, Palmer and O’Bryan
- Martin: Campbell
- Eaton: Tilden
- Helser: Rowe
- Oak: Fosmark and King
- Elm: Turner
