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 overall goal is institutional, cultural, and structural transformation that aligns our expectations and promotion standards with our educational mission.
