The purpose of the FEM (Feminist Empowerment at Mudd) Union is to bring students together and provide space and programming involving all genders. FEMunion would like to raise awareness of gender issues and make conversations about them more accessible to the students of Harvey Mudd College. Since we do not have a required gender studies class in our curriculum, this club will benefit the entire student body. We aim to combat interlocking systems of oppression based on, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, and ability. FEMunion commits to working towards securing positive changes for women in their personal and political lives and to deconstruct gender based constraints by providing a safe, welcoming platform for students to express their opinions.

Fighting sexism in STEM since 2015. We bring students together, provide space and programming involving ALL genders.

Decode Abroad Scholarship

The Decode Abroad Scholarship was established to address opportunity gaps for Mudders who identify as first-generation and/or low-income. After identifying financial barriers expressed by fellow Mudders, the Office of Institutional Diversity decided to allocate resources to support student success and provide equitable opportunities for all Mudders to capitalize on professional and academic opportunities. This scholarship will be awarded for Summer and Fall 2018 study abroad programs. The deadline to apply is February 15, 2018.

This scholarship is open to all Mudd students but priority will be given to students who fit the criteria of low-income and/or first-generation student.
