WINS offers a variety of innovative programming options designed to complement the academic rigor of an undergraduate level science degree plan as well as provide an opportunity for continued interaction past the first year. Many of these programs are open to WINS students at any stage of their college career. Therefore they are able to continue participating in enriching activities with their mentors and peers, while still accommodating the demanding schedule of an undergraduate student in the College of Natural Sciences.
WINS sponsors development workshops aimed at promoting academic, professional, and personal success. Topics have included locating and obtaining summer research opportunities, developing successful study skills, understanding non-traditional careers in science, building a science resume and more.
Leadership Development and Volunteerism
WINS sponsors outreach programs and events designed to stimulate the scientific curiosity of elementary, middle, and high school age girls. WINS students gain valuable leadership skills and give back to the community through active participation in the coordination and operation of these events.
