Networking Initiative

Note: Thank you for your interest in SU ADVANCE, our NSF funded Institutional Transformational Grant which ended September 30, 2017. The pages that follow are historical documents for informational purposes only.

Our goal? Assist incumbent women faculty in STEM as they develop their professional networks of collaborators, mentors, and campus supporters. The primary goal is to increase career resilience by establishing a supportive web of professional and social relations which incumbent women faculty can tap into when challenges and dilemmas arise in their career paths. Specific programs will include group workshops and one-on-one coaching opportunities that increase appreciation for and use of networks.
