Excellence in STEM Programs (ESP):
WiSE Women of Color in STEM serves as a pilot program for a new series of undergraduate programs called Excellence in STEM Programs (ESP). These programs will continue WiSE’s mission to support the achievement of excellence in STEM and persistence towards graduation while fostering an “I can do it!” attitude through capacity building activities, awareness/affirmation and a developmental mentoring network. In the future, ESP will also be developed for other groups of undergraduate women.
