The NSF-funded ADVANCE Program at NJIT pioneers the use of social network analysis
to affect institutional change and ensure the full participation of women in academic
science and engineering.
Over the next two years NJIT ADVANCE researchers will introduce network mapping tools that will make it easier for faculty to locate potential interdisciplinary research collaborators and to take snapshots of their professional networks as they develop over time. These new network mapping tools will also help university administrators spot blockages in information flow, identify emerging leaders, and assess mentoring programs.
