The group will establish an executive in the near future. The exact structure has yet to be decided, but will include representatives from both graduate and undergraduate students. Executive members will be students from the College of Physical and Engineering Science. Our intention is to become an accredited student group through the CSA or CPES student council. Dr.Valerie Davidson our faculty mentor will also monitor the progress of the group.
The main source of evaluation will come from the student members. Graduated and current members will be able to identify areas of need. Alumni contributors will also be another source of feedback about the progress of the group.
The WiSE group intends to approach university and industry sources for funding in the future. Potential sources of university funding include the Student Life Enhancement Fund, CPES Student Council, Central Students Association, Engineering and other related Alumni Associations, Undergraduate and Graduate Engineering Societies, and other discipline specific student councils. We also feel that there is a potential for industry support. Many companies are taking steps to increase the ratio of females to males in their workplaces. By providing a means to better prepare students for the future, the employers will also benefit.
