Our team, which was led by Dr. Donna Garcia, investigated gender and ethnic disparities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). We were primarily interested in the disparities experienced by faculty members at CSUSB in the retention, promotion and tenure process. The research completed by this team was used to apply for a series of grants, including a one million dollar ADVANCE grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). ADVANCE is an initiative set by NSF to expand and diversify the professorate in STEM departments within the USA. Through my involvement with the team, I served as an assistant supervisor to five undergraduate researchers. In my role as assistant supervisor, I coordinated research tasks, planned instructional workshops in Qualtrics and SPSS, advised in research methodology, and assisted in research activates with the team.
