The National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program began in 2001 and has awarded close to $300 million to over 160 different institutions of higher education in the U.S.
In September 2016, Seattle University received a 5-year ADVANCE "Institutional Transformation" grant: What Counts as Success? Recognizing and Rewarding Women Faculty's Differential Contribution in a Comprehensive Liberal Arts University. Our program is housed under the Office of the Provost.
Our overall goal is institutional, cultural, and structural transformation that aligns our expectations and promotion standards with our educational mission.
