WIE Student Success Programs


Women in Engineering Student Success programming has been developed to build a community that supports and inspires women engineering students.   Our progams offer opportunities to connect with peers, mentors and the WIE Student Success team.  Programming topics include professional development, health and wellness and building relationships.


WIE Connnect Mentoring Program

The WIE Connect Mentoring Program matches first year students (Mentees) with upperclassmen (Mentors) in a mentoring relationship.  Mentors give first year students the opportunity to have a guide to help them through their first year, and upperclassmen the opportunity to help a new student find their way in their first year at MSU.

WIE Connect also includes meetings and activities designed to build community and help participants grow personally and professionally.

WIE Connect is an acadmic year program (fall and spring) with the application process taking place in the summer.

WIE Rise Program for Second Year Students

WIE Rise is a program designed specifically for second year students in engineering. This program provides students with support specifically targeted to sophomore student needs and focuses on building community.

WIE Rise programming features speakers and activities focussed on personal and professional growth as an MSU engineering student.

WIE Rise is an acadmic year program (fall and spring) with the application process taking place in the summer.

WIE Student Success Freshman Portal

The WIE Student Success Freshman Portal is a virtual community for incoming freshman.  Students participate in the Portal the summer before they start at MSU to build early connections and meet other incoming students.  The Portal includes opportuntities to engage in virtual office hours, fun activities, ask questions and learn more about their peers.

The WIE Student Success Freshman Portal is open to all incoming students. The 2021 WIE Student Success Freshman Portal is NOW OPEN! Please email if you are an incoming freshman unable to access the Portal.






WIE Student Success Events

Women in Engineering Student Success events are designed to build an open and inclusive community and provide opportunities for engaging with the WIE Student Success team.


WIE Student Success Brain Breaks Brain Breaks are quick 'grab and go' snack breaks.  They are held several times each semester in Wilson Hall and the Engineering Building.  They are a great opportunity to meet other women engineering students, connect with WIE Student Success and have a free tasty treat.

Update for Fall 2021:  We plan to offer Brain Breaks as soon as it is safe. A final decision on Fall 2021 Brain Breaks will be made in August 2021.

WIE Celebrate! Kickoff Event Kickoff the new year with WIE Student Success!  Join us for fun, food, music and connections!  Meet other women engineering students, College faculty and staff, have your picture taken in the Photo Booth, enjoy the music and unique refreshments.  WE WILL HAVE DOOR PRIZES!

Update for Fall 2021:  We are not planning to offer the in person WIE Celebrate! kickoff event.  Look for information on more events in late August 2021.
