The JSU ADVANCE project is a five-year program funded by a grant from the NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation designed to enhance the overall work climate for women faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and the Social and Behavioral Science (SBS) disciplines, while informing the larger academic community about issues that are relevant to women at HBCUs. For women in the STEM-SBS disciplines, JSU ADVANCE reinforces and augments JSU's extant career and professional development in order to increase their number among tenured and senior faculty ranks and in administration, develops and supports a network of research and career mentors for women faculty, fosters a climate and culture of inclusion for all faculty, and encourage a proactive disposition in assessing university policies and procedures with an eye towards supporting diversity.
