Academic Advising Enhancement Michigan Tech AQIP Kickoff Date AQIP Project: Increasing Gender Diversity of Faculty & Students The goal of this project is to develop processes and practices that will increase the gender diversity of faculty and students in order to prepare students to create the future (mission) and attract, retain, and support a world-class and diverse faculty, staff, and student population (goal). It will improve processes for students and faculty, and communicate the value of gender diversity to our stakeholders.

AQIP Project: Increasing Gender Diversity of Faculty & Students Five interrelated projects: 1. Communication campaign: Develop and communicate gender/diversity goals to all stakeholders. 2. Improve brand awareness of Michigan Tech among females in external environment. 3. Improve processes for recruiting and mentoring female faculty (NSF ADVANCE Grant) 4. Improve processes for recruiting female students. 5. Improve processes for advising and mentoring female students. AQIP Project: Increasing Gender Diversity of Faculty & Students Goal 1: 35% of all students (graduate and undergraduate) at Michigan Tech will be women by 2020 Goal 2: Top 10 for number of engineering

undergraduate degrees granted to women Goal 3: Exceed national average for women faculty and students in STEM disciplines The Case for Increasing Female Enrollment at Michigan Tech ITS STRATEGIC Women are half of the worlds population we need to attract and retain them. Our students will gain a better understanding of contemporary global social and cultural contexts with engaged, thoughtful men and women in the classroom. There are highly qualified women students we are not reaching. Women tend to engage more in research and other activities that promote social development, which supports our goal of sustainable economic and social development. The Case for Increasing Female Enrollment at Michigan Tech ITS THE RIGHT THING TO DO The world needs more talented scientists and engineers, but

cultural barriers in STEM disciplines challenge even gifted women. Encouraging girls and young women to consider careers in STEM and pave the way to success is the right thing for us to do. The Case for Increasing Female Enrollment at Michigan Tech IT WILL IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION We need to educate the whole person. Women students want to make a difference and take on more leadership roles on campus. More women students will change the learning environment at Michigan Tech. More women on campus will improve the climate for diversity. It will alleviate the isolation of female students majoring in fields where they are a small minority, and create a better social climate for male students, preparing them to work with women when they graduate. The Case for Increasing Female Enrollment at Michigan Tech ITS GOOD BUSINESS

Upgrading overall academic achievement One of the most predictable drivers of academic success is the quality of the student body. Women are strong students, and we need to attract them to our talent pool. As the overall quality of our applicant pool rises, we can be more selective. Improving retention As the quality of our student body improves, fewer students will leave for academic reasons. If we achieve a critical mass of women in all disciplines, they will be more comfortable here and more likely to stay. The male students may be more likely to stay, too. Enhancing alumni support Better, happier students become more successful, engaged alumni who are more likely to support the University. Raising US News rankings More-selective admissions, higher retention, and alumni engagement are all drivers of US News rankings. AQIP Project: Increasing Gender Diversity of Faculty & Students DESIRED OUTCOMES Increased % of retention and graduation of female students. Increased % of retention, tenure and promotion of female faculty

Improved satisfaction of female students and faculty. Improved membership in organizations supporting women, and participation by women in Enterprise and professional science & engineering organizations. AQIP Project: International Experience Michigan Techs Strategic Plan Goal 2 encourages student participation in international experiences in order to understand the social and cultural contexts of the contemporary world. AQIP tasks: 1. Clarify student options for international experiences so that students can be better informed about opportunities and assisted in selecting opportunities appropriate to their needs. 2. Identify all current programs that could broadly be considered faculty-led and determine how and where coordination between academic units, IPS and the Provost is necessary to facilitate international experiences. AQIP Project: International Experience Global Citizenship Award

COPPER AWARD SILVER AWARD GOLD AWARD GOALS Demonstrate exposure to diverse cultures and global and cultural awareness Demonstrate confidence and competence in an intercultural setting. Demonstrate ability to

engage in another culture in an international setting. SAMPLE ACTIVITIES Active membership in International Club, Global City or other student organizations. Engage in D80 projects. Study Abroad Engage in research with international

content and communicate results. Conduct research in international setting Engineers without Borders AQIP Project: International Experience GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP AWARD Rank-orders experiences which would help students understand the social and cultural contexts of the contemporary world. Encourages students to gain the experience necessary to be a global citizen both on campus and studying abroad. It is open to all students at Michigan Tech - undergraduate and graduate domestic and international students. AQIP Project: International Experience

Study Abroad Important guidelines: Assure the safety and protection of students studying abroad. Promote consistency and reduce redundancies with a process that is helpful and not onerous for faculty. Follow university policies to reduce university liability. AQIP Project: International Experience Study Abroad 1. What aspects of faculty-led programs should be centralized in IPS so that IPS can provide oversight and consistency? 2. What aspects should be delegated to academic units so that innovation is encouraged? 3. What aspects should be overseen by the Provost to insure fairness and consistency? 4. How and where coordination between academic

units, IPS and the Provost is necessary to facilitate international experiences? AQIP Project: International Experience Study Abroad 1. Faculty International Academic Coordinator (FAIC). A faculty member with significant international experience, appointed by the Provost. 2. New faculty-led study abroad programs must follow a consistent process. 3. Existing study abroad programs should assure that they meet the criteria underlying this process. 4. All programs which involve Michigan Tech students in international travel and study require standard documentation, insurance and a briefing. AQIP Project: International Experience Study Abroad Review process for study abroad programs: 1. Attend annual fall semester study abroad

workshop. 2. Develop a concept proposal. Estimate revenues & expenses to determine break-even Cover instructor salary & expenses 3. Review of concept proposal by FAIC 4. Register and promote accepted proposals. 5. Pre-departure briefing.
