Program reaches out to female faculty
n the beginning of its second year, the MU-ADVANCED program said it hopes to be able to focus on attracting qualified female candidates to open faculty positions on campus.
The program's mission is to increase recruitment and retention of female science, technology, engineering and mathematics faculty. The program facilitates its development through programs such as mentoring, research and workshops, which are mainly focused on teaching new staff all the grant opportunities for which they can apply.
In the program's first year, MU-ADVANCED assisted 12 searches in several disciplines throughout campus including sociology, physics, nanotechnology, mathematics and microbiology. Of the job offers that were given out, 50 percent went to female applicants and 46 percent accepted. However, 67 percent of the men who were offered the job accepted.
