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

Our department and the College of Engineering and Sciences has worked very hard to foster a warm and friendly atmosphere for women who choose to come here. WE have a very active women's group composed of female faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. We meet three times every quarter for a lunch and make presentations for the group on topics important to women in the sciences and engineering. This gives the women a chance to voice their fears, any problems, and to give advice where needed. I have found this forum to be most helpful for me and my career.

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