Dartmouth College Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Its Women in Science Project

Dartmouth College recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of its Women in Science Project. The project aims to boost the number of women earning degrees in science, technology, mathematics, and engineering.

The program was established in 1990 with a focus on retaining first-year women students who chose to pursue a science curriculum. Under the program first-year women students in science fields have access to research internships with faculty mentors. There is also a peer mentoring program and an electronic information network dedicated to the project.

When the program began there were 45 women majoring in science fields at Dartmouth. This semester there were 102.
