Welcome to ARROWS at Boston University!

At Boston University, our goal is to promote diversity and develop a positive enriching environment on our campus. Specifically our program focuses on advancing women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at all levels on both the Charles River and Medical Campuses. We welcome you to join us in developing a strong community at BU through ARROWS events, programs, and workshops. Together, we can identify best practices and overcome existing barriers along the path that women face from their early years in K–12 into their careers in STEM. After all, it is in our best collective interests to reach individuals from all walks of life to maximize diversity and identify the best and brightest to guide the next generation to be problem solvers, thinkers, and innovators.
