Congratulations Amy Moors and colleagues!

Amy Moors, Klod Kokini, Kathleen Howell, and Patrice Buzzanell were approved by Purdue’s Provost Office to initiate a large-scale project on faculty retention and success. The project aims include increasing faculty awareness of bias, providing evidence-based strategies for promoting inclusion and belonging, preparing faculty to navigate issues of diversity and inclusion, fostering collegiality and interdisciplinary collaboration, and conducting research to inform inclusive campus practices. The multi-college project will span 3 years. Dr. Amy Moors currently is the Director of Social Science Research and Evaluation in the College of Engineering at Purdue. She has over 40 publications on topics that span the areas of gender, sexuality, close relationships, and institutional transformation.
