Project Elevate

Project ELEVATE (Equity-focused Launch to Empower and Value AGEP Faculty to Thrive in Engineering) is a collaborative alliance between Carnegie Mellon University, Johns Hopkins University, and New York University that is funded by the National Science Foundation Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program. The project will promote the equitable advancement of early career tenure-stream engineering faculty from groups racially and ethnically underrepresented in STEM and provide a framework for institutional change at private, highly selective research institutions that will enable all faculty to be members of a collaborative community.
