This project is funded by the National Science Foundation ADVANCE program through a Partnerships for Adaptation, Implementation, and Dissemination (PAID) Grant.
WISE@OU is published in the Oakland Journal Winter 2016 Issue, featuring the article "Multiple Paths to Full Professor: Challenges to the Academy in the 21st Century."
WISE@OU is built around four complimentary efforts:
- Self-assessment: In order to be successful, it is important to fully understand the nature and extent of the problem.
- Reform of our recruitment effort: Addressing equity requires a continuous wide-sweeping training of decision makers, raising their awareness of the issues and providing them with tools to combat biases.
- Career development of all women: A portfolio of methods and tools will be adapted and implemented to support career development.
- Dissemination: We will disseminate our experience, tools, and results to benefit (i) community and small colleges in South East Michigan and (ii) institutions whose policies and procedures are negotiated between the administration and faculty union.
