Establishment of L@s GANAS and Bridge to Faculty Programs

There are two examples where substantial equity gaps were identified. The first example identified that Hispanic/Latinx undergraduate students in STEM fields were less successful than White students, and a program was established—L@s GANAS— to improve participants’ sense of belonging, provide greater mentoring in their STEM courses, and prepare them to apply to graduate or professional schools. In the second example, UIC developed a tool, the Zero Group Representation Report, to monitor a department’s progress in fostering faculty diversity over the past decade. In response, UIC created the Bridge to Faculty program (B2F) to support departments interested in fostering faculty diversity.
