Abstract

The study describes programs utilized prior to the fall of 2001 and the new programs added in fall 2001 which include Wise Match. The new approach was actualized by the hard of dedicated staff that has a goal of reaching 50% of all the undergraduates women in the CEAS at ASU by fall 2002. The program was designed to pair lower division engineering students with upper division engineering students with a twist: activities such as scuba diving are linked to engineering; study groups and Women's Welness healing. The data received from the member forums indicate that the continuing and new WISE programs are effective.
