The ADVANCE Program conducts research and monitors institutional data to inform policies and practices concerning faculty at the University. We also regularly assess the climate in individual units and campus-wide. Several of our current research and evaluation efforts are highlighted below.
The STRIDE Committee provides information and advice about practices that will maximize the likelihood that diverse, well-qualified candidates for faculty positions will be identified, and, if selected for offers, recruited, retained, and promoted at the University of Michigan. The committee leads workshops for faculty and administrators involved in hiring.
