STEM Leadership

Douglass-DIMACS Computing Corps (DDCC):

This outreach program aims to increase the participation of women in computing disciplines through multifaceted interventions. Undergraduate students build a community among women in computing by designing activities and workshops for middle school girls to introduce them to computing and encourage them to explore fields in STEM.


STEM Ambassadors:

STEM Ambassadors is a Rutgers recognized student organization highly supported by the Douglass Project for Rutgers Women in STEM. The club is for women and non-binary individuals with a passion in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields, who have goals to pursue a professional career in these disciplines. The mission of this organization is to promote women/non-binary individuals with a strong interest in STEM fields both on- and off-campus. 



STEM Academic Leaders (SALs):

SALs have an important role as Douglass liaisons and serve as mentors and advisors to first year and upper class students in their respective Living-Learning Community (LLC). SALs implement STEM-related programming for their respective communities in collaboration with other SALs, graduate mentors, or their LLC Director. SALs live in a single at the LLC’s location and receive a stipend. Please note that the SAL application for the 2020-2021 academic year is closed. The application will reopen in March 2021 for the 2021-2022 academic year.


Research Advisory Board: 

The Research Advisory Board (RAB) is an undergraduate research mentoring group of dedicated student leaders that help the Douglass Project’s (DP) Project SUPER program implement workshops and programs that promote the success of women in our Introduction to Scientific Research (ISR) course. Students involved in the Research Advisory Board receive special leadership training in mentoring, program planning, professionalism, team building, problem solving, decision making and goal setting. As a peer leader and mentor, RABs assist other women who are interested in STEM find faculty advisors, student mentors, and other resources that support their overall success at Rutgers.
