ADVANCE Center Kick-Off October 21 October 6, 2014

Dear UH Faculty and Staff:

As Director of the Center for ADVANCING Faculty Success, I invite you to the launch of the Center on Tuesday, October 21 at 4 p.m. To celebrate the kick-off, I am honored to host Brown University President Emerita Ruth J. Simmons to give remarks and lead discussion. During her tenure at Brown, Dr. Simmons created an ambitious set of initiatives designed to expand and strengthen the faculty.

The University has received a $3.3 million ADVANCE grant from the National Science Foundation to attract and retain more women faculty in science, technology, education, and mathematic disciplines. I hope you will join me at this event as we move forward in our own initiative to transform our University culture through gender equity and diversity.
