The Rowe Women's Center

The Rowe Women’s Center, funded by the Brian H. and Jill P. Rowe Foundation, provides a focal point for women engineering students to access support and resources for success in class, on co-op assignments, and in their future careers.  Room 653 in Baldwin Hall, is a designated space for students to meet. The center coordinates with existing programs in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS), the Office of Inclusive Excellence and Community Engagement, the University, and the broader community to support students through:

  • Tutoring and mentoring activities
  • Service opportunities, such as outreach to elementary, middle, and high school girls to encourage and inform them about careers in engineering.
  • Networking with other campus women’s groups, local business groups, and national programs
  • Financial support to send several women from the CEAS student body to national professional engineering conferences.
