The JSUAdvance Team completed a comprehensive review of JSU Policies, which potentially impact the recruitment, retention, and advancement of female faculty.

The JSUAdvance Team initiated a formal mentoring program and a leadership program for STEM and SBS female faculty, which are both expected to become models for the entire campus.

The JSUAdvance Team hosted its Second Annual Summer Writing Retreat for STEM and SBS female faculty.  The demand for participation has crossed disciplinary boundaries and institutions.  Results indicate this as a promising practice
for increasing the scholarly productivity of STEM and SBS female faculty members.

The JSUAdvance Team sponsored its Second Annual JSUAdvance Academic International Group Travel this year by taking five female faculty members to South Africa where they presented their research and developed plans for ongoing international collaborations. This year also included making plans for a Joint U.S. – India Study of U.S. Best Practices for Women of Color in Science with the results to be presented at the U.S. Embassy’s 2012 Women in Science (WIS) Workshop in New Delhi.
