Welcome to the Office to Advance Women, Equity & Diversity

Welcome to the Office to Advance Women, Equity, and Diversity (AWED). Established in 2016 by Provost Kenneth G. Furton, AWED aims to achieve and sustain faculty equity and diversity as an essential element of FIU's academic excellence. AWED develops and manages a wide range of programs to promote faculty equity, diversity, and inclusion, including workshops and trainings to improve faculty hiring and promotion processes, faculty mentoring, and interdisciplinary networking. Other activities include strategic planning for salary equity, policy analysis and development, and other initiatives that support faculty diversity. FIU's National Science Foundation Institutional Transformation project, FIU ADVANCE, also is housed within AWED. FIU ADVANCE aims to increase, retain and promote more women and underrepresented minority faculty at FIU.
