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

Our percentage of female faculty at 17.6% is reflective of the average percentage of women who received Ph.D.s in the past 35 years. All three of our women faculty are active researchers and very good mentors. One of the woman faculty runs a support group for women majors - both graduates and undergraduates. Although our post-doctoral associates are all men, fully one third of our graduate students are women. Thus, women students though still a minority, would not feel too isolated. We strongly encourage women to apply to our M.S. program.

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