Mine Üçer Women in Science Lecture Series

The Women in Science Lecture Series was launched thanks to a generous gift by Mine Üçer. The speaker series promoted the awareness, participation and advancement of women pursuing academic careers in science. Many of FIU's science departments brought speakers to highlight women in the sciences.

Mine Üçer was born in Ankara, Turkey. After completing an Economics degree at Gazi University in Ankara, she worked at the British Embassy as a Commercial Officer. Mine and her husband are passionate about expanding the reach of education in Turkey and elsewhere. They support valuable projects aimed at bright high school and university students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Mine takes a special interest in projects targeting the education of girls and young women.

Dr. Yesim Darici, Director of the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies and Associate Professor of Physics, was instrumental in facilitating this gift.
