Syracuse University’s multi-disciplinary project, titled “The Inclusive Connective Corridor: Social Networks and the ADVANCEment of Women STEM Faculty,” aims to change the face of the next generation of faculty in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The overarching strategy of this project is to create an equity-based, inclusive “connective corridor” to facilitate and anchor social relationships among faculty women and men in the 12 STEM departments at Syracuse University, and to link these faculty and units within a web of “resource hubs” on and off campus that arise from interdisciplinary and cross-sector (campus, industry, and community) collaborations. ICC builds on existing successful partnerships that have resulted in unique research opportunities for STEM faculty. The project will create a passageway of active relationships, opportunities, and resources that will unleash the power of diverse talent.
