Chi Epsilon Pi is a national meteorology honors society.
Based out of the Department of Meteorology and founded by Tom Bedard in 2014.

SWIM is a group of professors, grad students, researchers, and other members of the meteorology community here at Penn State dedicated to providing support, discussion, and outreach for women in meteorology. The WMO has found that only 23% of professionals in the meteorology/hydrology/atmospheric science fields globally are female, and that number is even lower (about 12%) in the United States. While many strategies have emerged to foster the participation of women in science, the common thread has always been the need for peer support, mentorship, and networking, which is what we hope to provide.
