Women in Engineering Week: Shining a Light on Diversity

The MU College of Engineering is a welcoming, inclusive college, and that message was the theme and the focus of Women in Engineering (WIE) Week, Feb. 17 – 21. Events got underway Feb. 17 with a kick-off social in Lafferre Hall, where Mizzou Engineering students had an opportunity to meet with the leaders of several student organizations that are co-sponsoring WIE Week this semester.
