Seattle University is a Jesuit, Catholic university with a focus on academic excellence, community engagement, diversity, and social justice. The SU_ADVANCE Library was created with support from a National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Grant focused on the advancement of women faculty and minoritized faculty in institutions of higher education.
The Library contains material relevant to academic faculty, university administrators, and individuals and organizations interested in common equity issues that affect workplace environments. The Library was created as a resource for those looking for current practices, policies, and information relating to inclusion, equity, and diversity in higher education more generally, as well as in STEM fields; work-life balance, workplace climate, and job satisfaction; and mission-based institutions of higher education within the academy in the United States. The Library includes peer-reviewed journal articles and books, relevant public commentaries and magazine articles, and white papers and ADVANCE reports from other institutions and programs.
