Gender Equity

Empowering Women Through Training and Opportunity

The USPCASW is committed to a goal of gender equity, and believes a powerful tool in this effort is training and building up the capacity of women as engineers and professionals. In this effort, we have focused on recruiting women into the program. Our current cohort of exchange students is 40% women, with a goal of 50% next year. We are also working closely with our partners at Mehran University of Engineering and Technology in the further development of a Women's Resource Center, the implementation of a campus wide Gender Equity Plan, and the creation of a Gender Committee of serving faculty.
