Dear faculty member:
OREGON STATE ADVANCE invites you to nominate yourself to participate in one of the 2016 ADVANCE summer seminars. The summer seminar is the centerpiece and innovation for our NSF-funded ADVANCE Institutional Transformation grant and provides participants with opportunities to learn how issues of gender, race, sexual identity, social class, ability, age, religion, nation of origin, and other forms of difference work in higher education and STEM/SBS specifically and how to make institutional change to bring about a more welcoming and life-affirming university.
The seminar will meet for nine days, 9-4 each day, with an hour break for lunch (lunch provided) and for six hours across the 2016-17 academic year. Participants on a 9-month contract will receive a stipend for participation; those on 12-month contracts will receive professional development funds.
The 2016 seminars meet (1) M-F June 13-17 and T-F June 21-24 or (2) M-F August 29-September 2 and T-F September 6-9.
