Provost's Advisory Council on Women Faculty

Launched in fall 2016, the Provost’s Advisory Council on Women Faculty works to support our women and women-identified faculty through strengthening our community, highlighting their outstanding scholarship, creative work, and teaching, and fostering their even greater career success. The work of this Council supports our collective larger focus on improving diversity and inclusion at Northwestern.

The Council is committed to:

  1. Learning from and building upon the significant activities of various women faculty groups that are already occurring in schools across the University;
  2. Expanding our programs for building community and highlighting the scholarship of women and women-identified faculty;
  3. Fostering successful career trajectories of women faculty and enhance pipeline programs;
  4. Strengthening leadership training and opportunities; and
  5. Bringing an evidence-based perspective to understanding the experiences of women faculty at Northwestern, and utilizing recent scholarship on women and gender in academia to guide our work.
