Michigan Tech has been a participant in the NSF ADVANCE vision of STEM equity and campus-wide faculty advancement since 2006. See ADVANCE at Michigan Tech for activities, programs, and policies 2006-2016. Three initiatives lead the university’s ongoing work on responsive campus improvement and self-study.

  • Advanced Matrix Process for University Programs (AMP-UP)—a Lean Continuous Improvement (CI) process to dynamically identify, plan, implement, assess, and adjust policies, practices, and programs to enhance faculty success and increase retention. This is a pilot project to implement a transformative and sustainable process of improvement in academic processes.

  • Diversity Literacy Online Workshop—a mandatory faculty bias literacy workshop introducing concepts of implicit bias, accumulation of disadvantage, and micro-practices that encumber selection, hiring, and promotion processes. The Workshop also includes a Legal Aspects training component.

  • Early Career Management (ECM)—a program involving first-year support teams for new faculty. The teams engage the issues particular to each faculty member’s successful management of research, teaching, and service responsibilities.
