ADVANCE Advocates


The ADVANCE Center works to promote and sustain equity at Texas A&M, but everyone in the university community has a role to play. The individuals below serve as advocates for the ADVANCE Program. Advocates provide support in many ways. Some simply communicate information about our activities with others or share their own experiences with our program. Others may promote the values of the program in their units, across campus, and beyond.  Some advocates even serve on committees that design and implement ADVANCE activities.  Many advocates engage in behaviors that support our women faculty and faculty of color.

If you are a member of the TAMU community and would like to be an advocate and support the ADVANCE Program, please email the ADVANCE Program Coordinator, Linda Stelly.
