Michigan Tech receives a second NSF ADVANCE grant

Adrienne Minerick (SoT) is the principal investigator on a project that has received a $1,000,000 research and development grant from the National Science Foundation. Patricia Sotirin (HU), Sonia Goltz (SBE), Audrey Mayer (SFRES/SS) and Andrew Storer (SFRES) are Co/PIs on the project, “ADVANCE Adaptation AMP-UP Continuous Improvement Process to Transform Institutional Practices and Culture.” This is a three-year project.

First piloted in November 2015, AMP-UP is a highly collaborative, inclusive structure to broadly engage the campus community in creating an environment that welcomes, values and supports women, underrepresented minority individuals and those who have traditionally experienced an excess of bias that accumulates into measurable disadvantages for career progress and job satisfaction (Tech Today April 8 2018).  For more see the Michigan Tech News story.
