Women In Aerospace (WIA) is a registered student organization at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign whose goal is to promote and maintain women's interests in the field of aerospace engineering. WIA also aims to provide a supportive resource for current and prospective female aerospace engineers and foster a sense of community for women in the aerospace engineering department here at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
