    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Platteville (Platteville, WI).

    Interview

    Phone call from research chair to set up phone interview. Phone interview consisted of the whole committee. Each member took turns asking questions. After a couple weeks, I was contacted to arrange a one-day on-campus interview. This entailed meeting one-on-one with faculty and committee members. Also had lunch with faculty. Gave a presentation to students on vision for the academic program (not typical; most interviews require a teaching demonstration, which is attended by students and faculty). There was also an additional meeting with students and the director.

  • March is national Women's History Month, so we're honoring several of our first women Pioneers! Long before there was a Women in Engineering Program at UW-Platteville, there were two young women who paved the way: Fay Bible and Nancy Morrow. In 1935, they were the first women to attend the Mining School. They joined the staff of W.M.S. Geode as student reporters, and wrote several articles and editorials about their experiences being mining coeds and responding to critics. They even spent a year helping build the "M" moving hundreds of tons of limestone. They both graduated in 1938.
