Office for the Advancement of Women in Science and Engineering

In response to K-State's limited operations status, KAWSE staff will be working remotely through the end of the Spring 2020 semester. Although we can access our voicemail, we will not be checking it as frequently as normal. The best way to contact us is by emailing kawse@ksu.edu. Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe, stay healthy. 

Welcome to KAWSE's Home Page 

In the left column, you will find tabs for our four main programs: GROW, EXCITE, SUCCEED and ADVANCE. 

Each of these programs works to increase the participation, retention and advancement of girls and women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). 

If you have any questions, please let us know! You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
