Workshops, Events, and Networks
Workshops and invited speakers focus on specific topics suggested by U-M faculty and leadership, ADVANCE’s work on campus, and research. Programs change somewhat from year to year, but consistently focus on faculty development and success. While free to attend, faculty workshops typically require prior registration.

Network To Advance Women Scientists And Engineers
“I have attended many events of the Network to Advance Women Scientists and Engineers. They have always been enjoyable and enriching, intellectually and emotionally. Meeting with like-minded people at different career stages and from a diverse range of disciplines over a glass of wine and a nice meal helped me relax from work and expanded my horizon. Each time I looked forward to the event and felt refreshed afterwards.”
-LSA Faculty Member
Single Faculty Network
“The Single Faculty Network events provide a great opportunity to meet faculty from other departments – not only to share professional best practices, but also to meet a wide range of people with different interests and backgrounds socially. The events themselves are also interesting and engaging on their own –the event I attended included a gallery opening and dinner at Vinology.”
-Ross School of Business Faculty Member
Network to Advance Faculty of Color
“The Network to Advance Faculty of Color dinners and meetings made it possible for me to meet colleagues who I ordinarily will not meet on our huge and sprawling campus. Hearing and learning about the exciting projects, awards, promotions, and sharing our personal stories at these meetings are so inspiring I can’t wait for our next in-person meeting.”
-Kwasi Ampene, Afroamerican and African Studies (DAAS)
U-M LGBT Faculty Alliance
“Our networking dinners are for me a gathering of the family. We connect over food, listen to exciting speakers, and talk about issues vital to our community.”
-Jens-Christian Meiners, Physics and Biophysics
