Lotte Bailyn, management professor at MIT's Sloan School of Management and co-director of the MIT Workplace Center, who headed the NSF site team that visited Michigan, recommended the University institutionalize its efforts after a fall 2004 visit.

The program also will increasingly broaden its mission to address comparable goals for faculty in all disciplines, other underrepresented groups, and other constituencies such as graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

"We're committing further resources to this project because we see good evidence that we're making real progress toward important institutional goals," Gramlich said.

Besides raising the number of women hired for faculty positions, nine women scientists and engineers have been appointed to leadership positions and a January 2005 campus survey found an improved work environment for women science and engineering faculty.

Internal resources will partially replace the combination of external and internal funding that has supported the first five years of ADVANCE's activities. Internal support of $800,000 per year has been committed through June 30, 2011.

The planned funding includes support from U-M's College of Literature, Science, and the Arts; Medical School; College of Engineering; and the STRIDE committee (a group of senior science and engineering faculty who lead workshops and provide departments with information and advice about recruitment). The units will share responsibility for the salary of the faculty director.

The overall funding level is designed to ensure three elements: leadership, core staff and
