Pallas appointed as ADVANCE Fellow

Sarah Pallas is teaching a course on Developmental Neurobiology for the first time at UMass this semester.

Dr. Pallas has also been appointed as an ADVANCE fellow this year. A UMass ADVANCE Faculty Fellowship provides faculty members with a unique opportunity to participate in ADVANCE’s program of institutional transformation. Fellows will partner with the ADVANCE Leadership Team, which will provide the resources, recognition and relationship building necessary to help faculty collaborate successfully and feel valued and included. Fellows provide recommendations and feedback to the team about ADVANCE programming, and they liaise with their departments, and promote our efforts.

Funded by the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program, UMass ADVANCE focuses on equity for women faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) by gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, nationality, and other statuses. Read more HERE!
