NYU receives $490k NSF grant to promote women in the sciences
Date:9/9/2008

New York University has received a $490,000, three-year grant from the National Science Foundation to bolster its existing campus-wide initiative to promote the representation of women and minorities in the sciences. It seeks to achieve these aims by providing support for female faculty at all levels, and, additionally, through research, workshops, and training seminars broaden the participation of women in science.

"This grant is a small step towards helping NYU accelerate the necessary institutional transformation that will lead us towards a goal that is desired by all," said Daniel Stein, NYU's dean for science. "Through broadening the participation of women and minorities in science, an area in which they have traditionally been underrepresented nationally, faculty excellence is significantly enhanced and NYU becomes a stronger institution."

"Given its rise to prominence over the last few decades, NYU's progress towards a more equitable and diverse institution will have significant effects on the advancement of women within other universities and in their academic disciplines," Stein added. "Greater numbers of women faculty with increased job satisfaction can lead to increased numbers of women entering the sciences."

"This grant is an outstanding and affirming recognition of NYU's commitment to promote women in the sciences," said Diane Yu, chief of staff and deputy to the president, who also chairs the NYU Women's Leadership Forum, launched last year with a focus on advancing leadership opportunities for women faculty and administrators.

The award is an NSF ADVANCE-PAID grant. The goal of the NSF ADVANCE program is to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers. PAID Awards are a category of funding that stands for Partnerships for Adaptation, Implementation, and Dissemination.

Under the grant, NYU will evaluate and implement programs to increase the recruitme
