Still time to participate in STEM faculty work life study

Faculty across the sciences, including engineering, physical and social sciences, and mathematics, are invited to participate in a study about faculty work life. Results from the survey will be used to inform a proposal for the NSF ADVANCE institutional transformation grant. ADVANCE – Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers – provides funding for unique and innovative programs to support the recruitment, promotion, and retention of faculty members.

Responses from both men and women are still being sought. Surveys will be anonymous, and data will be reported only in aggregated form. Those who complete a survey may enter to win a $50 gift certificate to the University Bookstore. Fifty of these prizes will be given away. A link to the survey was sent to STEM faculty via email. Check your inbox if you have not already participated. Your time is appreciated.
