The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has recently established an institutional membership with the Association for Women in Science. The Association for Women in Science is the largest multidisciplinary organization for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“The Association for Women in Science works with institutions like ours to create a culture that not only values and respects all people but also encourages risk taking and open mindedness,” said Steve Goddard, interim associate vice chancellor for research. “These are the attributes we need to solve the complex challenges of today.”

A committee of nine individuals, each of whom will receive complimentary membership in the Association for Women in Science, will guide campus activities related to the new membership. As of now three of the nine positions are filled with Judy Walker, interim associate vice chancellor for faculty affairs and Deb Hamernik, interim associate vice chancellor for research. Mary Bomberger Brown is the founding member of the Lincoln chapter and a research assistant professor in the School of Natural Resources.

Faculty that are interested in serving on the steering committee should send their curriculum vitae and a brief paragraph expressing interest by May 24 to Juanita Jackson-Stoner at jjackson@unl.edu.

Association for Women in Science membership on a complementary basis for all qualified undergraduate and graduate students is included as part of the institutional partnership agreement.
