ADVANCE-Purdue and the Center for Faculty Success A Department within the Division of Diversity and Inclusion


One of ADVANCE-Purdue’s strengths is the blending of programming and research. 

The research enterprises associated with ADVANCE-Purdue and PCFS uses theories and methods drawn from sociology and education to assess the theoretical models on which programs are based, and to develop new models that might be more inclusive in how they represent women faculty members’ experiences. 

This research contributes to literature on women’s underrepresentation in STEM, as well as a case study of interest to researchers in sociology and organizational change. 

Our research pages are organized by overall topic:

  • Measuring progress: where we report on our research and evaluation findings on our effectiveness as a center
  • Improving resources: where we report on our research findings on our two major research studies with ADVANCE
  • Research updates: where we share with you the most up-to-date research findings on women’s underrepresentation in STEM faculty positions
