Progress On Activity 
We have recruited six undergraduate women to REU Mass for this summer.
Lessons Learned 
This is the sixth year of our REU site.  We have learned several things about women and URM students: - Need to create strong relationships within cohort - Need to provide continuing interactions after site (via Facebook) - Need to network REU students with local women graduate students and faculty - Women entering the program are less sure about grad school, but almost all who participated have gone on to PhD programs
