ADVANCE at WSU continues to adhere to the core mission set under NSF funding focused on institutional transformation toward a more inclusive/faculty-friendly environment, supporting diversity and equity. The efforts have expanded in terms of programs for individual faculty members, now available to women in any academic unit at WSU and faculty identifying with under-represented groups regardless of discipline or gender. Of course, we still support women faculty members in traditional Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines, as well as medicine, targeting STEMM fields.

 

We are enthusiastic about implementing our core programs, aimed at recruitment and retention of faculty. We plan to continue offering our grant opportunities: the External Mentor, the Transitions Grant, and the Leadership Training Program. Those who have previously participated in the External Mentor opportunity are also eligible for the External Mentor Pilot Extension Program.  As in the past, ADVANCE at WSU is making the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) resources available to the WSU community, funding participation in the highly regarded Faculty Success Program for eligible faculty under the Leadership Training Program. These opportunities will continue, and we work to bring new trainings and workshops to campus through our ties to NCFDD, as well as other organizations.
