As part of our Clare Boothe Luce Program at the University of Dallas, successful female scientists, engineers, and mathematicians are invited to campus to deliver a lecture over their research; the event is open to the UD community. These women also meet with students to discuss opportunities in their fields and what it is like to be woman in their respective areas of study.
We also offer each year a Clare Boothe Luce Panel of women in academia, engineering, research, and industry to talk to students about the paths they took to get to their current position of success. Clare Boothe Luce Scholars also serve on the panel, as well as men who can contribute to the discussion of how women can be successful in science, engineering, and mathematics.
