Throughout history, women have made significant contributions to the STEM field, yet the percentage of women entering the field is declining. To help reverse this trend, SNHU is dedicated to preparing more women for success in high-growth, high-paying STEM careers. Learn more about our mission.
At SNHU, we see the call to support women in STEM as more than just a national priority. It’s part of our mission. For us, it starts with designing programs that provide the expertise students need to succeed in these critical fields. To further that mission, we joined the National Center for Women in Technology and provide opportunities for our female students to attend global networking events like the Grace Hopper Conference in Houston, TX. On a local level, we’re digging in at STEM workshops for NH Girls in Technology Day. Our hope is that through education, dedicated support and initiatives like these, more women will enter STEM fields and succeed in them.
