NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Grant


Institutional Transformation Initiative

The Institutionalizing Transformation Initiative is aimed at organizing, monitoring, and assessing institutional progress and disseminating best practices to the broader academic community. These initiatives are implemented through the EXCELinSE (Excellence in Science and Engineering) Center, which also oversees the faculty-friendly policy review and proposal process, and disseminates results and best practices to the broader academic community.

Other current programs toward institutional transformation include the ADVANCE Research program which provides
  • dissemination and evaluation of WSU Social Science Research Grants
  • collection of National Science Foundation indicator data
  • development and dissemination of ADVANCE grant-related social science research (e.g., Collaborative on the Academic Careers in Higher Education [COACHE] survey dissemination, data collection and analysis, and results dissemination; WSU chair's interviews)
