The goal of UNH ADVANCE is to improve faculty climate and academic leadership through increased fairness, transparency, and clarity of recruitment, retention, and promotion and tenure policies and practices. While the ADVANCE grant is directed at retaining and advancing women faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and the Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS), the overall goal to transform the climate of the university benefits the entire UNH faculty.
Vicki Banyard, Ph.D, professor of Psychology with an affiliation with the Justice Studies Program, is the UNH ADVANCE Faculty Fellow leading the ADVANCE social science research study including the development and analysis of the UNH Faculty Climate Survey. She is also a research and evaluation consultant with Prevention Innovations. Due to her extensive experience in this field, she was recently given a position with the United States Department of Justice Office of Violence Against Women to do research and evaluation with their Campus Grants Program which aims to end sexual assault, relationship abuse, and stalking.
Climate Survey Results
Based on the results of the 2013 Faculty Climate Survey, UNH ADVANCE has produced two reports on the respondents who took the survey and faculty perceptions on issues of influence, fit, fairness.
