Welcome to the Women ADVANCE at USM project website. Thank you for your interest in USM and our activities to promote diversity and equality among all faculty across the university. This project will investigate the representation and status of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and social and behavioral sciences disciplines at USM.
What is ADVANCE?
"ADVANCE encourages institutions of higher education and the broader science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) community, including professional societies and other STEM related, not-for-profit organizations, to address various aspects of STEM academic culture and institutional structure that may differentially affect women faculty and academic administrators."
