ADVANCE at Rice University

Rice University's NSF ADVANCE Program is designed to capitalize on the strong commitment to gender equity at the University, and to create new insights into the features of the academy that impede the inclusion and progress of women and minorities more generally in the professoriate. Our hope is that more women and underrepresented minorities will be inspired to join the ranks of academe and to use their own skills to advance into important leadership roles based on the activities of this program.
