We believe diversity is the key to our nation's future.

We are your advocates - for underrepresented students pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

We lead the way to Diversity Workforce Development resources and events coordinated by the Idaho Diversity Network.

We provide access to STEM opportunities through our partnerships within ISU, the state, multicultural professional organizations.

We can connect you with

  • real world job experience,
  • access to research projects in your field,
  • career building activities that nurture your cultural awareness

Statistics indicate that only 26% of women work in the STEM fields, and 11% are practicing engineers. Research suggests a lack of role models and self-efficacy due to stereotype threat/sexism. The ISU office of STEM Diversity and outreach supports women in science. The STEM Cafe is an opportunity for students to build their social network and connect with a STEM Mentor.
