Women In STEM Center

Due to the rising covid cases in our state, we have made the decision to postpone our 25th Tennessee Girls in STEM, TGIS, (formerly known as the MTSU EYH) Conference and our 25th Anniversary Celebration to spring 2022.  We know that you will understand that your daughter’s safety is our first priority.

We will meet with campus officials and determine a new date in the spring.  We will inform you of this date in the next few weeks.  If you wish a refund of the registration fee, please let us know and we will process your refund.  Our email address is tgis@mtsu.edu.

Thank you for your understanding.  Keep safe and take care.

MTSU is the proud home of the Women In STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Center. The WISTEM Center is open to all who support women in STEM on campus, in the community, and across Tennessee. 

You can reach us by phone at 615-494-7763 or visit us at Davis Science Building Room 115.
