Our vision is to develop an inclusive research institution whose faculty are supported by a system that promotes career-long excellence for all. We focus on obstacles to recruiting, hiring, retaining, and advancing an exceptional, diverse faculty.


  • Increase representation of women in target STEMM (science, engineering, technology, mathematics, and medicine) disciplines, as well as diverse faculty in all disciplines at WSU. This is to be accomplished by providing institutional support through programs, policies, procedures, and climate change relevant to critical points on the academic career path (e.g., recruitment, pre- and post-tenure advancement, and leadership).
  • Develop and disseminate innovative strategies that can be applied at other institutions
  • Implement an infrastructure that gives these efforts highest institutional support and visibility and allows transformation to continue past the lifetime of the NSF grant.

To support these goals we have developed 3 major initiatives:
