cisters -- email list for women in the CIS department (students, faculty, lecturers, post-docs)


About cisters
English (USA)

Welcome! This is a social list for the women of the CIS, MEAM, and ESE departments, focusing on PhD students, but also including post-docs, and faculty members/lecturers. By social, we do *NOT* mean a list to which you should post cute quotes or funny websites. Rather, we are hoping to foster a sense of community between the women in the CIS, MEAM, and ESE departments. We recognize that most of us will be here for at least five years, and we hope that during this time we can get to know one another and create an environment of support, friendship, and fun.

This list should be used for sending messages explicitly to the female students, post-docs, and faculty, and should not be used if there is a wider audience for which another newsgroup or email list would also be appropriate.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the cisters Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
