External Advisory Board


External Advisory Board (EAB)

The EAB includes individuals with national and international prominence, whose expertise includes interdisciplinary STEM research, multi-disciplinary center leadership, institutional change management, experience with past and on-going ADVANCE Institutional Transformation, and expertise in the study of faculty diversity in higher education and the experience of diverse faculty, especially Hispanics. The EAB also represents a cross-section of the greater California and U.S. populations with respect to gender and cultural identity.

The EAB meets quarterly via conference calls and visits UC Davis once annually to assess progress towards our programmatic goals, recommends appropriate programmatic adjustments and directions, assesses research program progress, and identifies potential venues for external/national collaboration. The annual visit often coincides with the UC Davis ADVANCE Annual Retreat, when the EAB members view presentations by ADVANCE leaders and consults with the internal and external evaluators.
