Women in STEM Week Events Underway

A week of activities focused on the importance of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics kicks off Oct. 7 with workshops, presentations and training opportunities for members of the campus community.

Haley Knighten, chemical engineering major and event organizer, said this year's programming continues to build on previous efforts.
