The Society of Women in Space Exploration (SWISE) chapter at San Diego State University is a student organization that strives to promote and encourage women and minorities to pursue careers that support space exploration efforts. We are open to students from all majors to join us in this cause! We are also a chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS), a 501(c)3 non-profit that empowers young people to participate and make an impact in space exploration.
