KSU is participating in a project funded by a National Science Foundation: ADVANCE Partnerships for Adaptation, Implementation, and Dissemination (PAID) Award: “PROMOTE – Improving the promotion to full processes at Western public universities” (Award #: HRD-0820273). The Principal investigators are Kimberly A. Sullivan (Utah State University), Ann Austin (Utah State University), Beth A. Montelone (Kansas State University), Dana Britton (Kansas State University), and Cynthia Zoski (New Mexico State University).
Equity Action Workshops are organized for the administration and faculty of the NSF ADVANCE Program colleges and partner departments. They provide participants with greater understanding of gender issues and how to address those issues so that they will be prepared to create a more equitable working climate across the K-State campus.
Policies are being analyzed to address issues such as faculty leave, tenure and promotion, and recruitment. An established policy ensures that the burden of increased duties is distributed fairly, and includes appropriate elements of reciprocity.
The purpose of this series is to encourage tenure-track women faculty members in partner departments to make the professional connections with leaders in their research area. Participation in this initiative accelerates the development of networks for the new faculty members, include women in decision-making roles, and create links between women faculty and disciplinary leaders.
Career MAPS is envisioned as a “hire-to-retire” program. Deans and department heads work with women faculty members at all ranks to develop long-term career plans.
The Work/Life Resources Website is a central, highly visible, and easily accessible website that contains a collection of K-State and community resources of particular interest to women. This website will include: integration of personal and professional resources in one location, ability to search for information on specific needs, and a compilation of strategies to negotiate work-life balance issues.
