On behalf of the entire UMBC community, I’d like to welcome you to the ADVANCE Program at UMBC. I am so pleased that you are giving us the opportunity to introduce you to our university and to learn more about our commitment to supporting the full participation and advancement of women in academia. READ MORE At UMBC ADVANCE, we focus on providing our faculty with the resources and support they need to have productive and satisfying careers. Since receiving our NSF Institutional Transformation Award in 2003, we have made great strides in hiring women and underrepresented minority faculty and hope to serve as a model of best practices. As a campus, we remain committed to continuing this trend. Thank you again for your interest in UMBC and the ADVANCE program, and best wishes for continued success.
