UMaine’s Rising Tide effort focuses on increasing the percentage of women faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Social and Behavioral Science (SBS) fields to develop a more diverse science and engineering workforce.
Additional Rising Tide objectives include:
• Improving the climate at the University of Maine to enhance faculty retention
• Providing support for professional development to retain and advance women faculty
• Reducing isolation created by a small faculty community and limited numbers of women faculty
