The Well at Intervarsity. "The Well -- a gathering place for women in graduate school and beyond...The image of the well taken from Scripture is one of women coming together around their daily work and gathering at their local water source to retrieve what was necessary to survive and thrive. As they drew water, they had the opportunity to talk, laugh, share concerns, and glean wisdom from one another. We seek to provide similar opportunities at The Well."
Dear Mentor at The Well. CWIS members are encouraged to go to The Well (a great website for
Christian women graduate students run by Intervarsity) and visit their
"Dear Mentor" page. You will find answers to lots of questions that

Christian Women in Science! So instead of starting our own Dear Mentor
column, we are teaming up with The Well. Visit their website to see
what is already posted. You can submit a new question to their website,
or email to us at CWIS (above), and we'll work with the folks at The
Well to get it answered and posted.
