Hello fellow females in STEM!

We hope you had an enjoyable summer! As some of you may know, WISTEM is a group of female faculty members in STEM, here at NIU, who meet to network and discuss important issues. We are interested in kick-starting a group for undergraduate students and graduate students in STEM who may meet informally once per month to do the same. We would like to touch base with everyone as we have several potential events planned for this coming school year, such as inviting female scientists to speak at a colloquium.

We were hoping to meet for coffee on Friday, September 11th, at 2 pm in Founder's Cafe in the basement of the library, to discuss these ideas and get to know each other a little better.

If you cannot make the meeting but are interested in attending, please contact us using the emails listed below.

We hope to see you there!

Free Webcast: Green Building Strategies

Wednesday, August 26, 1:00pm (central)
Building a greener restaurant, meaning one that has a minimal impact on its environment, does not happen by accident. It takes plenty of critical thought and planning to ensure a location maximizes all of its resources during the design, construction and even operational phase.
In this hour-long presentation led by rd+d Editorial Director Joe Carbonara, our expert panel will:
  • Discuss key planning, design and building considerations to help make any restaurant more environmentally friendly
  • Explore the benefits of pursuing green designations such as LEED
  • Outline best practices for determining which options will help the restaurant achieve its green goals without compromising the brand promise
