The University of Houston is proud to announce it has been awarded a National Science Foundation Institutional Transformation (IT) ADVANCE grant to create a Center for ADVANCING UH Faculty Success. The goal of the NSF ADVANCE program is to increase the number and success of women faculty in the science, technology, engineering, mathematicsm and behavioral sciences fields. The five-year ADVANCE grant supports sustainable activities and programs that are part of a systemic effort to transform the institution.
In Good Company
UH is the fifth institution of higher education in Texas to receive an NSF ADVANCE IT award, joining the University of Texas at El Paso, Rice University, Texas A&M University, and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. ADVANCE is the great “connector” uniting participating institutions in their efforts to expand the pool of talented people and provide opportunities. Increasing the number of women in STEM fields who choose a career in academia – including women of color – will strengthen our institutions and more equitably utilize the exceptional talents of our diverse citizenry.
Invitation to women faculty in STEM to participate in the ARN E-Mentoring Network
We hope you will join us as a mentor or mentee in the ARN E Mentoring Network session starting this fall!
