Advancement, Recruitment, and Retention of Women in Science (ARROWS)

About Us

The College of Medicine has established a center supported by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant for the advancement of women scientists. The Center for ARROWS (Advancement, Recruitment, and Retention of Women Scientists) will provide programs and supports specifically for female PhD scientists or similar female faculty focused on research. 

Current goals:

  • Increase the number of women scientists (including URM) recruited by changing the applicant pool and hiring practices.
  • Improve  the  retention  and  advancement  of  women  scientists  (including URM) by achieving the critical mass, changing the promotion practices, and providing key supports.
