RIT receives $3.2 million award from the NSF to advance female faculty
Date:10/31/2012

Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology were awarded $3.2 million from the National Science Foundation for the project, "CONNECT: Increasing the Representation and Advancement of Women Faculty at RIT."

RIT's project is part of the foundation's ADVANCE Institutional Transformation initiatives intended to increase representation and advancement of women in academic science, technology, engineering and mathematicsalso referred to as STEMcareers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce.

CONNECT@RITCreating Opportunity Networks for Engagement and Collective Transformationfocuses on improving conditions for female STEM faculty, with a particular emphasis on women of color and women who are deaf and hard-of-hearing at the university. It will be undertaken over a five-year period, starting immediately through a series of directed, campus-wide activities.

The university will address issues of recruitment, retention and advancement of female faculty through reassessment of some of its academic and human resource policies, expanding a newly established faculty mentoring program and increasing professional development and leadership opportunities.

New activities would include developing dual-career hire initiatives and the launch of a Connectivity Seriesformal professional networking processesand an Eminent Scholars program. The latter will promote female faculty scholarship and provide mentoring and support to further develop research.

"Adapting the proposed interventions to the unique needs of underrepresented groups such as women of color faculty and deaf and hard-of-hearing women faculty will broaden access to the formal and informal RIT network for all faculty," says Margaret Bailey, grant principal investigator. She also serves as faculty associate to the provost and is a professor of mechanical engineering in RIT's Kate Gleason College of Engineering.
