Who are we and why are we here?
CISTERS is a group of undergraduate, graduate, and faculty women in technology-driven fields at the University of Delaware. Since there's not that many of us, we thought it'd be a good idea to keep in touch and stick together. Our goal is to promote women in technology @ UD and have fun!
Contrary to our name, we are not exclusive to CIS, IS, or MIS majors -- CISTERS is open to all undergraduate, graduate, and faculty in technology driven fields.
- Promote awareness of our group within our department and throughout the University
- Provide a supportive community for all women in technology-driven fields by initiating relevant programs, such as mentoring and early/pre-major outreach and informative seminars about career and research opportunities
- Participation and attendance at The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. UD is an affiliate academic underwriter of the Grace Hopper Celebration!
- Provide leadership and service opportunities for participants
- Our current plans and activities
CISters was awarded the NCWIT Symantec Student Seed Fund for a video contest to help attracting women to CIS!
