HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - Michigan Tech University officially rolled out their Advance Career Management program Tuesday morning.
The Advance Initiative is a program founded by the National Science Foundation with the purpose of increasing the number of women and underrepresented faculty in STEM fields.
This program has been being worked on at Michigan Tech for the past 5 years. The new program offers Tech faculty more resources to help them succeed in their careers.
"For faculty, what they get to do is explore which emphasis area they want to use in their careers. They can decide if they want to continue to increase excellence in research or to do a balance between research, teaching, and service," said Adrienne Minerick, Principal Investigator with the Michigan Tech Advance Initiative.
Michigan Tech is hoping that this new program will help increase faculty retention as well as their career success.
