Lehigh ADVANCE Center for Women STEM Faculty supports inclusion and equity to enhance the climate for and success of women in STEM fields through best practices for recruitment, retention and community.


Faculty finalists meet, whenever possible, with a pair of "ambassadors" to support their recruitment experience.
Are you a researcher (postdoc or faculty member) who wishes to grow their inclusive research mentoring skills? Join us for this six part series to gain advice you can put into practice from day 1.
New faculty each year can learn the institution and strategies related to strong mentorship relationships in cross disciplinary teams.
