The University of Maryland ADVANCE research team conducts research on faculty work environments and how they support or thwart faculty success. Our social science research has conducted interviews, faculty work environment surveys, time diary studies, observations of peer networks and longitudinal retention and advancement studies. We also synthesize the research for faculty and academic leaders on key areas of faculty careers and where full participation of women and URM groups is challenged.

Key Areas of Study include:

  • Faculty Agency

  • Faculty Departure

  • Faculty Time Study

  • Gender & On-Campus Service: View our research brief on Gender & Workload here.

  • Organizational Support for Faculty Learning

  • Peer Networks
