In 2022, Missouri S&T was awarded a $1 million grant through the National Science Foundation’s ADVANCE program to work toward increasing the representation of women — especially those from underrepresented racial or ethnic groups — in faculty and leadership positions at the university. The fellows work to complete projects that will help the university reach this goal.

The two newest fellows for the program include:

  • Dr. Carleigh Davis, assistant professor of English and technical communication. Davis’s fellowship project is titled: “Leading with impact: Tools and templates for sustainable faculty searches.” Davis will develop materials to facilitate recruitment and equitable evaluation of faculty candidates. 
  • Dr. Robin Verble, associate professor of biological sciences and the Ozark Research Field Station director. Verble’s fellowship project is titled: “Advancing diverse participation in field work.” Verble plans to evaluate S&T’s existing field site safety and fieldwork policies and recommend improvements based on best practices. She will create field safety planning documents and templates; conduct workshops for field site managers and staff to develop site-specific field safety plans; and produce a sustainable field safety training module.
