Faculty Leading Change
In academic year 2013-2014, Rutgers created and implemented its first Faculty Leading Change (FLC). An FLC is a group of cross-disciplinary faculty of size 6-15 or more (8 to 12 is the recommended size) that engages in an active, collaborative, yearlong program of teaching and learning via facilitated discussions and curriculum.
Dual Career Initiative
In August 2013, SciWomen was awarded supplemental funding through the RU FAIR ADVANCE grant (NSF Award: HRD-0810978) to support a Rutgers dual-career specialist position. Based on recommendations by AAUP (2010) and the Clayman Institute Report (2008) on dual-career hires, the supplement works to meet the needs of dual-career couples with an aim to recruit new hires and to retain current faculty members in STEM who are facing dual-career issues.
