Distinguished Scientists and Engineers from Underrepresented Groups

Initiated in 2002, this lecture series creates greater visibility for distinguished women in their respective fields. In bringing these accomplished professionals to campus-each woman an outstanding example of achievement and success in science and engineering-the program offers encouragement to our female students, postdoctoral associates, and faculty.
