The Women in Engineering Student Advisory Board (WIESAB) is currently accepting applications for board membership. 

The Women in Engineering Student Advisory Board (WIESAB) was established to give undergraduate students the opportunity to voice their opinions and implement changes that can benefit all students and the Clark School.

The WIESAB Members are appointed based on nominations and applications (self-nominations). Students will serve on the WIESAB for a minimum of a year, and may serve up to 3 years. Students must be re-nominated to continue after each term. The goal of the WIESAB is to bring together representatives from various organizations across the Clark School, in an effort to amplify the voices of all women studying engineering, as we strive to improve engineering culture and the experiences of all students.
 
The WIESAB Members are expected to meet the following expectations during their term on the Board: Attend regular WIESAB meetings, as arranged by the WIESAB Chair and/or WIE staff;Fulfill duties to support the WIESAB objectives, as assigned; Provide feedback, insight, and advice to the WIE Program staff and representatives regarding student experiences, as well as ways to improve Clark School environment and culture to facilitate success for all students; Promote community among all women in the Clark School of Engineering; Promote gender diversity (and all forms of diversity) in the field of engineering; and Support other WIESAB Members and WIE staff in implementing WIESAB activities, programs, and/or events.
