Professor Carol Espy-Wilson (ECE/ISR) has been appointed the ADVANCE Professor for Women Faculty of Color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Espy-Wilson's appointment begins in spring 2011.

The ADVANCE Program for Inclusive Excellence aims to transform the institutional culture of the University of Maryland by facilitating networks, offering individual mentoring and support, and offering information and strategic opportunities for women faculty in all areas of academia. The program is funded by a five-year, multi-million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation. Professor Avis Cohen (Biology/ISR) is the project director. The ADVANCE Program will produce academic environments with assumptions, values and beliefs, policies and practices that support and generate professional growth and excellence for all faculty.
