Advancing Women at Virginia Tech: University Statistics 2010
AdvanceVT began in 2003 as a comprehensive program to promote and enhance the careers of women in academic science and engineering at Virginia Tech through institutional transformation. Although grant funding from the National Science Foundation expired in August 2010, AdvanceVT continues with support from partners across the university, including the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, the Graduate School, the Women’s Center, the College of Engineering, the College of Science, and the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. High impact initiatives have been expanded to address work-life balance and career development issues for men and women faculty in all disciplines. AdvanceVT continues to offer signature events such as distinguished speakers, leadership lunches, graduate student seminars, and the annual Advancing Diversity at Virginia Tech workshop. Ongoing programs are listed below.
