Dear all:

We are pleased to announce that UNCG has been awarded a prestigious, ADVANCE grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This three-year award will support the adaptation and implementation of proven organizational change strategies that support the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in academic science careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce.

To celebrate this award and provide the campus information about the opportunities and activities that will be part of this transformative initiative, we would like to invite you to the launch event that will be held on October 29th from 4-6pm in the Virginia Dare Room of the Alumni House. We look forward to seeing you there!
