NSF Advance



The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense.” The NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future providing funding for approximately 25% of all federally supported basic research conducted by America’s colleges and universities.

NSF ADVANCE Adaptation (NSF 20-554)

The NSF ADVANCE Adaptation track is designed to support work to ADAPTIMPLEMENT, and EVALUATE evidence-based systemic change strategies that have been shown to promote gender equity for STEM faculty in academic workplaces and the academic profession.  For more information, see NSF ADVANCE.

The vision of CCNY's ADVANCE project, AIDE-STEM (Advance Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity in STEM), is to build a lasting culture of fairness and equity, a commitment to diversity, and an inclusive institutional environment that will benefit all members of our community at City College. AIDE-STEM will foster cooperative relationships with department faculty, program directors, chairs, and deans that will result in equitable and beneficial relationships among faculty and administrators. The project employs an intersectional approach to adapt and implement evidence-based programs that address specific areas of concern, including systemic racism, to build lasting institutional change.
