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.

Navigating Bias Issues in and out of the Classroom. PowerPlay’s labs are an opportunity to experiment in a safe, yet spirited atmosphere around the many ways we interact with one another. Trained Actor-improvisers will present prepared scenarios based on UNH student classroom experiences. Workshop participants are then given the chance to ask the characters questions about their experiences in the scene and experiment with different strategies to achieve alternate outcomes. The workshop allows faculty, and others who teach an opportunity to identify incidents of bias in the classroom/workplace and then build expertise in addressing those issues in constructive ways.
