Recently, Professor Cynthia Moss (Psychology/ISR) was instrumental in bringing to campus Dr. Jane Goodall as part of the ADVANCE Program's lecture series. Dr. Goodall, an esteemed primatologist, ethologist, and anthropologist, spoke on Oct. 13. Her topic was "Making a Difference."

The ADVANCE Program for Inclusive Excellence aims to transform the institutional culture of the University of Maryland by facilitating networks, offering individual mentoring and support, and offering information and strategic opportunities for women faculty in all areas of academia. The program is funded by a five-year, multi-million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation. The ADVANCE Program will produce academic environments with assumptions, values and beliefs, policies and practices that support and generate professional growth and excellence for all faculty.
