We are an organization whose mission is to provide encouragement and support to women, both graduate and undergraduate, in the field of computing. We aim to foster understanding between men and women in Computer Science and to improve women's involvement in the field. We hold events, both academic and social in nature, and work with other groups and the Computer Science department.

We are an official ACM-W chapter.
