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