The STEM departments participating in Gannon’s ADVANCE PAID grant proposal are Biology, Chemistry, Computer and Information Science, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical and ComputerEngineering, Environmental Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Psychology.
Data factors driving the TRANSFORM follow:
1. Female faculty constitutes a low percentage of the STEM faculty.
Table 1: Percentage of Female Faculty in STEM-Related Administrative Units at Gannon University, 2009-2014 Data
2.Female faculty do not have a strong presence at higher ranks.
Table 2: Male and Female STEM Faculty across Rank Levels at Gannon University, 2009-2014 Data
3. Support needed for new faculty who find it necessary to adjust their research to be compatible with the constraints of a primarily undergraduate institution or for those who have taken time away from research for family responsibilities is complemented by the Strategy 2, Research Initiation Grant, sponsored by the grant.
4. Opportunities were lacking for the development of leadership skills needed for the additional responsibilities of management at the University or within professional societies. Strategy 3, Leadership Developments, addresses this factor.
