Welcome

 

2015-2017 has been a period of transformation for ADVANCE at WSU, as we transitioned from being an NSF funded effort, to a sustainable set of programs supported by the WSU Provost’s Office. Our efforts continue to be in line with the core mission set under NSF funding, focused on institutional transformation toward a more inclusive/faculty-friendly environment. The efforts have also expanded in terms of support for individual faculty members, which now includes under-represented minority faculty in any discipline at WSU, and continues to apply to women faculty members in tenure-track positions in STEM disciplines.


We are enthusiastic about implementing our core programs, aimed at the recruitment and retention of women faculty in STEM disciplines (as funded by NSF ADVANCE) and our new mission, which includes support of under-represented minority faculty members in all disciplines at WSU. We will continue our grant opportunities under existing programs: 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, now in its second year.  As in the past year, 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 multiple eligible faculty members under the Leadership Training Program. These opportunities will continue in the 2017-2018 academic year, and we will once again bring trainings and workshops to campus, through our ties to NCFDD, as well as other organizations.


Please contact us if you have any questions, and stay tuned to information regarding our many offerings and resources aimed at enhancing faculty success across the WSU community.

With best wishes for the start of another exciting academic year,

Masha Gartstein

Professor, Clinical-Development Psychology

Director of ADVANCE at WSU
