Virginia Tech received an ADVANCE Institutional Transformation grant from the National Science Foundation in 2003 to initiate AdvanceVT, a program to increase the participation and success of women in academic science and engineering careers by changing institutional culture and practices. As a result, the university has incorporated AdvanceVT-initiated programs and policies across the institution.

Programs during the grant funding period targeted graduate students preparing for faculty careers, new faculty starting tenure-track appointments, senior faculty preparing for leadership roles, search committees, department heads, and senior administrators. 

Elements of AdvanceVT include:

AdvanceVT reports, presentations, and newsletters are archived here and in VTechWorks.
