The University of Maryland, College Park was named one of "Seven Schools that Empower Women" by the American Association of University Women (AAUW). 

The list aims to recognize the schools that take action every day to advocate on the behalf of women. The AAUW praised the honorees for “making the world a more equitable place.” 

The AAUW said that they were “glad to see the Terrapins tackle” the issue of women’s underrepresentation in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. 

The Clark School of Engineering’s Flexus program was cited as an example of an excellent collegiate program for the empowerment and encouragement of women. 

Flexus is a Living and Learning Program at the university that is open to first-year engineering students with an interest in promoting gender diversity in the field of engineering. It aims to provide a supportive community for young, female engineers.  

The program provides networking opportunities with women mentors and role models, career and personal development opportunities, and important technical and leadership skills necessary to succeed in engineering.
