Home - A Welcome from our Director

Welcome to the website of the Rising Tide Center at the University of Maine!

“A rising tide lifts all boats.” This is the concept guiding the work of the Rising Tide Center. We believe that with careful attention to data and a systemic understanding of the campus and its culture and climates, we can inform practices, procedures, and policies that will enhance our campus community and increase job satisfaction for all faculty at UMaine.

Funded in 2010 by the National Science Foundation as part of its ADVANCE Institutional Transformation program, the Rising Tide Center is charged with recruiting, retaining, and advancing women faculty in the sciences.  At the same time, we recognize and value our mission to improve the climate for all faculty – regardless of gender or discipline.

On this website you will find information about our programs and activities, reports of data collected for the project, and links to both on- and off-campus entities that can help support women in academic sciences as well as all faculty members, department chairs, and academic administrators.
