ADVANCE Nebraska

America’s future prosperity requires talented men and women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln endorses the vital goal of recruiting, retaining, and promoting more women in STEM fields because:

  • To grow Nebraska’s economy and compete for talented workers, UNL must support all potential and existing employees.
  • Having women faculty attracts more women students into STEM fields.
  • A competitive UNL creates a workplace that welcomes and supports all potential faculty regardless of gender.
  • National funding agencies require and reward diverse research teams and efforts to reach diverse student and general populations.
  • The quality of research and creative solutions are enriched by diverse views, perspectives, and critical analyses.
