Student Diversity, Outreach, and Women’s Programs


Women's Programs

Mission:

The mission of the SDOWP office is to actively increase the number and diversity of prepared and motivated first through twelfth-grade students through STEM enrichment-focused camps and workshops; to recruit, support and retain female and traditionally underrepresented minority students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields through educational and professional development resources.

Through programs and partnerships, SDOWP supports diversity-related programming and promotes awareness about female and multicultural related issues. SDOWP will strive to help to foster an academic and professional environment that supports the students of Missouri S&T and strengthens the campus community.

Pre-College and Diversity Programs

Mission:

Support S&T's science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) enrichment-focused camps, workshops and academic competitions for post-kindergarten through 12th-grade students, teachers and related educators. The department forges partnerships with industry, non-for-profit organizations, school leaders and other constituents to increase the number and diversity of students who are prepared and motivated to pursue STEM-based careers.

We actively support students from ethnic populations that have historically been under-represented in science and engineering careers. The staff supports all diversity-related programming that will better ensure the success of these students on campus and after graduation. The office also helps promote awareness about multicultural related issues to the campus community. Through programs and partnerships, SDP helps foster an academic and professional environment that supports the students of Missouri S&T and strengthens the campus community.
