Thank you for your interest in the ADVANCE program at Oklahoma State University
The National Science Foundation created ADVANCE to increase the participation of women in the scientific and engineering workforce through the increased representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers. In September 2008, OSU received a 3-year ADVANCE Partnerships for Adaptation, Implementation and Dissemination (P.A.I.D.) Award to accomplish these goals. Project efforts include work climate assessment, faculty development and mentoring, work/family policy initiatives, developing professional and social support networks, and overall climate change.
At OSU, women comprise 19% of tenured and tenure track STEM faculty.
