Marshall University's ADVANCE program hopes to make a change in the institutional culture that will benefit not just females, but males and minorities across all disciplines on campus.
The group looks for strategies that work to recruit, retain and promote women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) academic positions. These strategies are also used for other underrepresented groups such as racial and ethnic minorities. Currently at Marshall only 27% of faculty positions in the STEM fields are held by females.
