    ABOUT HU ADVANCE-IT

    The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded Howard University a $3.4 million grant from the ADVANCE program for a five-year institutional transformation project in 2012. Launched in 2001, the ADVANCE program was designed to increase diversity in academia – specifically in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines – by developing the interest, participation and advancement of women in these areas. Howard’s award supports the ADVANCE Institutional Transformation project, referred to as ADVANCE-IT, one of many diverse projects under the ADVANCE umbrella. Howard has an extraordinary track record of diversifying the STEM field with the highest number of African-American bachelor’s degree recipients who subsequently earned science and engineering doctoral degrees nationally according to a recent NSF study. Howard University ADVANCE-IT: Women of Color Faculty in STEM as Change Agents aims to develop an innovative and strategic model for institutional transformation at Howard University that increases the number of female faculty and academic leaders in the STEM disciplines. The program plans to increase diversity through education, advocacy, and empowerment while simultaneously making a significant contribution to strengthening the nation’s STEM workforce. The portfolio of activities and outcomes will also benefit other non-STEM academic areas by supporting general policies and establishing practices reflective of the University’s commitment to diversity.
