$200K funds study on women in sciences

SUNY Oswego’s will receive a $200,000 grant to study the status of women faculty in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, disciplines at the college.

Rhonda Mandel, left, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Webe Kadima, associate professor of chemistry, look over SUNY Oswego’s successful application for a $200,000 grant to study the status of women faculty in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, disciplines at the college. Kadima is principal investigator for the two-year National Science Foundation catalyst grant. Researchers aim to learn whether anything — from policies to practices — holds back women in STEM in terms of recruitment, hiring, retention and promotion. The award will help determine whether SUNY Oswego may be a candidate for a much larger “institutional transformation” grant.
