AdvanceVT

AdvanceVT

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 in support of faculty in all disciplines continue through the work of the faculty affairs team in the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and InclusiveVT. The mission of AdvanceVT is to assist Virginia Tech in preparing, recruiting, and retaining high quality and diverse faculty.
