Center for Women in Science and Engineering
Lawrence Tech recognizes that women often face unique challenges in pursuing an education in engineering or the sciences. There are still too few mentors and role models. Often, women are subtly discouraged from the study of science and mathematics at a young age. Many women today also balance raising a family, pursuing an education, and a career. And, after graduation they can face a “glass ceiling” in many industries.
The Center for Women will attract women to science and engineering with specialized support and mentoring. And after graduation it will coordinate a network of mentoring and career services.
