The Center for Higher Education conducted a two-year study of the academic career success of female faculty in science- and engineering-related programs at public two-year institutions. This research effort was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s ADVANCE—PAID­ program, which seeks to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more-diverse science and engineering workforce.

The ADVANCE Partnerships for Adaptation, Implementation and Dissemination (PAID) research grant that the Center received supported quantitative analysis of national datasets and collection of qualitative data from interviews to advance understanding of the issues faced by female faculty in science and engineering programs at community colleges. The Center’s ADVANCE team included faculty from the College of Arts & Sciences and the Russ College of Engineering.

The grant period for this research initiative ended on August 31, 2012. Products of this research effort include the following:
