The University of Michigan ADVANCE Program aims to improve our campus environment for faculty in four general areas: recruitment, retention, leadership and climate. The ADVANCE Program assesses the campus climate through a series of campus-wide faculty surveys (reports from those surveys can be found on the ADVANCE website) as well as individualized assessments of schools and department. The program also collects and reports annual indicator data about the state of the faculty at UM. As a result of these efforts the ADVANCE Program has amassed a large amount of demographic and descriptive data on the faculty of the University of Michigan across many years. Given this wealth of information we have initiated a process to more thoroughly consider these data, specifically in terms of ADVANCE's mission to improve efforts at recruitment, retention, and leadership, to help University policy-makers at the University and individual school levels identify areas of success as well as needs for future and/or continued efforts.
Previous reports produced during and after the NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Grant period are also available: 2002, 2003, 2004 (I), 2004 (II), 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014Salary Equity Studies
In 2001, 2007, and 2012, the University of Michigan Office of the Provost commissioned a group of faculty and academic administrators to conduct an econometric analysis of salaries of tenured and tenure-track faculty at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Findings from these analyses are available on the Provost's office website.
The analyses in this report utilized measures from the ADVANCE Program's aggregated climate assessment data. This data set includes tenure-track faculty from UM departments, schools, and units that took part in ADVANCE climate assessments between 2008 and 2015. These analyses provide another way to assess important climate indicators and their consequences.Faculty Experience
