After an ADVANCE program has finished, a final report is made describing outcomes and institutionalization.
“The Georgia Tech (GT) NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Program took an integrated approach to institutional factors to support the full participation and advancement of women and to establish a model of best practices in academic science and engineering, constituting the core intellectual merit and broader impacts of the initiative.”
What have been the effects of ADVANCE at the University of Michigan? To help answer that question, this report focuses on one of the interventions outlined in the original NSF proposal: Departmental Transformation Grants. These grants involved substantial awards (up to $250,000) to departments that made rigorous, specific and ambitious proposals for improving their own internal policies, practices and climates, based on analyses of the current situation and recent past.

To increase the recruitment, retention, and promotion into leadership positions of women in the sciences and engineering To create and implement an integrated campus-wide set of initiatives to enhance campus climate through the CU-ADVANCE Center To be a central resource that shares “best practices” for recruitment, retention and promotion of women faculty, and connects faculty and decision makers across departments and colleges
Cornell University is committed to diversity and gender equity and to an institutional environment where all faculty can achieve their greatest potential in research, education, and service. Despite the university’s commitment, gender diversity remains a significant problem that affects the quality of Cornell’s enterprise. The representation of women faculty in science and engineering (S&E) falls below the level of female PhDs produced nationally.
The External Advisory Committee convened in Missoula on July 27th, 2005. We spent one day on campus, meeting with deans and faculty. We then held a retreat with PACE staff at the Souble Arrow Lodge to review progress, examine data, and discuss current activities in depth.
“WISELI is a centralized, visible administrative structure with a mission to address a number of impediments to women’s academic advancement. The center structure of WISELI allows the institute to bring the issues of women scientists and engineers from obscurity to visibility. It provides an effective and legitimate means of networking women faculty across departments; performing research and evaluation on programs and initiatives designed to improve the environment for women; administering new programs (gr
