Welcome to the ADVANCE Center website! The Texas A&M ADVANCE program was funded in October, 2010 by the National Science Foundation and is an interdisciplinary collaboration among departments in STEM fields of study (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
The program consists of twelve activtities which are being evaluated for efficacy and six associated social science studies. These initiatives are being conducted in an effort to transform our institution in ways that will increase the participation and advancement of women in STEM academic careers. We are strongly committed to faculty diversity and the further implementation of university policies and practices that promote gender equity.
Our aim is to create a better workplace for everyone by promoting faculty growth and development, health and well-being, involvement, recognition, and work-life balance.
