ADVANCE program featured in The Diamondback

The Feb. 14, 2011 issue of the University of Maryland student newspaper, The Diamondback has a nice story on the ADVANCE program, including an interview with Professor Avis Cohen (Biology/ISR), the project director.

The ADVANCE Program for Inclusive Excellence aims to transform the institutional culture of the University of Maryland by facilitating networks, offering individual mentoring and support, and offering information and strategic opportunities for women faculty in all areas of academia. The program is funded by a five-year, multi-million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation. The ADVANCE Program will produce academic environments with assumptions, values and beliefs, policies and practices that support and generate professional growth and excellence for all faculty.
