ARROWS

Advance, Recruit, Retain, and Organize Women in STEM

The ARROWS mission is to organize, align, and vertically integrate programs created to advance women throughout the STEM community at Boston University.

ARROWS: Strength in Unity

There are a number of organizations on campus that share our mission, but, for the most part, they operate independently. Vertical integration will promote interaction and mentoring among these groups and their constituents.

From pre-college to undergrads, graduate students, postdocs, and faculty, ARROWS aims to facilitate the advancement and success of Boston University’s women in STEM.
