  2. 504+ institutions • 1600+ deans • 37% Research Universities • 47% Master’s Comprehensive • 13% Primarily Undergraduate • 70% NSF ADVANCE grantees are CCAS members CCAS Membership profile

  3. 1) Infuse gender equity content into CCAS professional development programs in a sustainable way 2) Maximize opportunities for positive impact of CCAS ADVANCE on individuals underrepresented in STEM disciplines 3) Develop, utilize and make widely available a set of robust case studies that incorporate gender equity elements CCAS ADVANCE PROJECT GOALS

  4. New Deans Workshop – variable regional location Department Chairs Workshop – regional or done at home campus, in collaboration with deans Annual Conference Activities - variable regional location • Case studies discussion sessions • Gender issues panel sessions • Gender Issues Breakfast • Breakfast for Minority Deans • Critical Issues Forum sessions • “Dean’s Knowledge Base” database – CCAS ADVANCE resources website - CCAS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES

  8. Audience discussion questions: • How can we maximize the impact of university vs. professional organization NSF ADVANCE grantee efforts to improve campus climate, policies and practices at all types of universities for enhanced career development of STEM women? • How can different STEM discipline organizations best partner with other professional organizations for maximizing national positive impact of NSF ADVANCE grant initiatives? Developing effective partnerships between University and Professional Organization NSF ADVANCE efforts
