Board Members of 2018–2019

Women in Science at Columbia (WISC) is one organization made up of two chapters – one at the Morningside (116th) campus and one at the CUMC (168th) campus. The purpose of having two chapters that share a mission and have many similar events is to make it convenient for members to attend events on the campus closer to school or home. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend events on either or both campuses.

Each WISC chapter has its own board and contact information.  To get more involved in WISC, please see the information outlined below.
