The mission of AdvanceVT is to assist Virginia Tech in preparing, recruiting, and retaining high quality and diverse faculty. To accomplish this mission, our programs are designed to facilitate success in scholarship, teaching, engagement and administration for a wide range of audiences. These programs target graduate students preparing for faculty careers, new faculty just starting out, senior faculty preparing for leadership roles, search committees, department heads, and senior administrators. AdvanceVT began in 2003 with a grant from the National Science Foundation to promote and enhance the careers of women in academic science and engineering through institutional transformation. Grant funding continued until August 2010. High impact initiatives continue with support from university partners, and have been expanded to include faculty in all disciplines.
