The ADVANCE Program for Inclusive Excellence aims to transform the institutional culture of our university by facilitating networks, offering individual mentoring and support, and providing information and strategic opportunities for women faculty in all areas of academia. As part of our program, we are pleased to announce the first cohort of ADVANCE professors, distinguished women faculty of all disciplines who will act as mentors for junior women faculty members in their colleges as well as serving as role models for all college women.
