Provost's Welcome

Dr. Diane Alperin

On behalf of Florida Atlantic University, I would like to thank you for your interest in the ADVANCE Program for Institutional Transformation (IT). FAU is embarking on an exciting ADVANCE IT-Catalyst program to conduct self-assessment activities and review of relevant policies and procedures to provide the foundation necessary to undertake institutional transformation. The goal of ADVANCE is to increase the full participation and advancement of women and underrepresented faculty (i.e., race/ethnicity, disability status, sexual orientation/identity) in academic science and engineering careers.

The ADVANCE FAU  program is a collaborative effort comprised of diverse faculty and staff. Our website provides information about our initiatives, activities, events, and contact information. FAU is deeply committed to fostering an environment that supports all faculty to thrive and to be successful in their academic career. By understanding our organizational culture, policies, practices, procedures as well as learning from successful ADVANCE awardees, we seek to catalyze these efforts.

We encourage you to contact us to learn more about ADVANCE FAU . Please feel free to contact the ADVANCE FAU  Team with any questions you have about the project. We look forward to working with you and welcome your suggestions to help us with this important endeavor. For more information about the ADVANCE program, please contact
