The ADVANCE Institutional Transformation award that helped create two key programs – the Strength Through Equity and Diversity (STEAD) implicit bias training workshops for hiring and searches and the Center for the Advancement of Multicultural Perspectives on Science (CAMPOS), facilitating promotion and tenure of faculty from diverse backgrounds.
