Monitoring Progress toward ADVANCE Goals at the University of Maine
As a recipient of an NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation award, the Rising Tide Center is required to report annually on progress toward achieving program goals. Progress will be measured, in part, by monitoring changes in our faculty population. Our toolkit includes  snapshots of  the UMaine faculty community,  data that will reflect the impact of our programs and facilitate evaluation of  Rising Tide initiatives.  Please click the links below to view relevant institutional data indicators, compiled by the Office of Institutional Research, for the University of Maine for the academic years 2008/2009 through 2014/2015:

ADVANCE Research at UMaine
To support institutionalization of strategic processes, procedures, and programs that will transform the University of Maine, the Rising Tide Center team utilizes an evidence-based approach to sustain the initiatives supported by NSF funding. Review the research conducted by the social science team on our RESEARCH page, including reports on faculty satisfaction and retention, departmental climate, faculty views on promotion and tenure processes at UMaine, and one study that highlights the perspectives of female undergraduate students in STEM disciplines.
