GSU is committed to pursuing and retaining a robust faculty and promote an inclusive and welcoming climate. To improve climate and retention of faculty in STEM, the ADVANCE-IMPACT team will implement a Bystander Leadership Program that will teach faculty and administrators to identify and intervene in instances of bias and discrimination.
Building on FIU’s successful Bystander Leadership Program, these full day workshops will prepare deans, department chairs, and faculty to recognize instances of bias and to take action to address them.
