Provost's Welcome

Dr. Brett DanilowiczOn behalf of Florida Atlantic University, I would like to thank you for your interest in FAU’s ADVANCE Program. Our goal 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.

FAU’s ADVANCE program is a collaborative effort comprised of diverse faculty, administrators and staff. Our website provides information about our initiatives, events, resources and findings. FAU is deeply committed to fostering an environment that supports all faculty to thrive in their academic career. Our team learns from other successful ADVANCE grantees, from evidence-based research and from our own self-studies to transform our organizational culture, practices, policies and procedures and to make them more inclusive.

We encourage the whole FAU community to learn more about FAU’s ADVANCE. Please feel free to contact the team with any questions you have about the project or any suggestions to help us with this important endeavor. We look forward to working with you and for you.


Bret Danilowicz, Ph.D.

Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
