Flexus: The Dr. Marilyn Berman Pollans Women in Engineering (WIE) Living and Learning Program is a two-year living and learning community open to incoming first-year engineering students. The Flexus community is devoted toward providing a supportive environment for all students who identify as women studying engineering. Flexus promotes diversity, inclusion, and social justice in the field of Engineering through curricular and co-curricular programs. Flexus is an ideal program for students who are looking for community, academic support, and ways to develop as future engineers outside of technical courses. The Flexus community engages closely with the Virtus Community.  

The Virtus Living and Learning Program is a two-year living and learning community open to incoming first-year engineering students. Virtus was designed for all engineering students who identify as men. The primary focus of Virtus is to promote community and inclusivity within the Clark School and the field of engineering. The Virtus community leads by example in empowering students to shift the culture of engineering towards the inclusivity of underrepresented groups in the field of engineering, including, but not limited to, women. The Virtus community engages closely with Flexus.
