RÉSUMÉ

Over the past 20 years, colleges and universities across the country have developed Women in Engineering (WIE) and Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) programs as resources to promote the recruitment and retention of women in college engineering. As part of the Women's Experiences in College Engineering project, a series of interviews were conducted with WIE and WISE directors at 26 colleges and universities in the United States. The results of these interviews were compiled to gain an understanding of the structure of WIE and WISE programs and the experience and advice that program directors have for others who may be interested in such programs.
