In February 2005 a brief web survey was sent to all instructional track women scientists and engineers (N=202) on campus to assess their current experiences of the climate and to learn if they perceive any changes in the climate since the ADVANCE baseline survey was completed in the fall 2001. To enable these comparisons, survey questions were limited to specific climate questions asked in the 2001 survey as well as a job satisfaction rating.
Leadership Education for Advancement and Promotion (LEAP) has been funded by the National Science Foundation’s ADVANCE program. ADVANCE as a whole, and LEAP in particular, seek to facilitate women’s representation, advancement, and leadership in academia...
UNC Charlotte ADVANCE has surveyed tenure-track faculty in April on their perception of the institutional climate and job satisfaction at UNC Charlotte. The survey was available from Friday April 2 through Friday April 16. Results will be compiled in aggregate form by Fall 2010 and will be shared with Deans and other leaders. Deans will be encouraged to use this feedback to understand where their colleges are excelling and to see opportunities for improvement as they align with each college diversity plan.

The ADVANCE Work Life Satisfaction Outcomes Survey was administered as part of the evaluation of the ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Grant during the spring of 2007. The purpose of the survey was to capture the perceptions of participants regarding work life satisfaction outcomes at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).
Our goal? Encourage widespread accountability for creating inclusive environments, particularly in STEM departments and specifically among male faculty. The practices initiative supports leadership development for all faculty members and strengthens the engagement of male faculty. It also addresses departmental diversity planning.
Over the course of the 2008 academic year, the Survey Group developed a comprehensive career-life survey focusing on gender issues in STEM. The team reviewed climate surveys previously developed and administered at other NSF ADVANCE institutions, primarily the survey developed at the University of Michigan and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
This PowerPoint presentation presents findings of RIT's self-study across colleges with STEM departments to collect and analyze data on the factors that women seek in an academic position and determine how well RIT provides (or fails to provide) for these through climate study activities, policy benchmarking, and objective data review.
1. Foster a supportive and inclusive climate for faculty success.
2. Establish recruitment and retention policies and procedures to enhance diversity of the faculty.
3. Provide professional development and advancement of opportunities to build positive psychological capital of women faculty.
The campus conducted a study of the working environment for tenured and tenure-track faculty in the Colleges of Engineering and Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2004. The survey was designed to capture the perceptions of the faculty members regarding their workplace: what they like, what they dislike, what is important in their daily life, and what enhances or impedes productivity. The goal was to inform us how to improve job satisfaction and faculty success at UIC. Faculty members in the two colleges responded
