Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.

We have an excellent, small department. Because it is small in size there is a sense of comaraderie that is difficult to achieve at larger institutions. This is very positive environment for nurturing female scientists.

Has the institution had a Climate for Women in Physics Site Visit or Gender Equity Conversation?

No
