Institutions Developing Excellence in Academic Leadership (IDEAL), a 3-year grant (2009-2012) to seed gender equity related institutional transformation in six Northern Ohio universities ; a 1-year research grant (2009-2010) to investigate the diversity, equity and inclusion outcomes of the ADVANCE award program; and Academic Careers in Engineering and Science (ACES), a 5-year award (2003 - 2008) to advance women faculty in engineering and the sciences at CWRU. 


Patricia Devine, Ph.D.
 
PATRICIA G. DEVINE is Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Devine is an internationally recognized expert in the study of stereotyping, prejudice and intergroup relations. Her seminal and enduring contributions to the study of prejudice and intergroup relations have been recognized in her receipt of the APA Early Career Contribution (1994) and the Society of Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize (1990), the Society of Experimental Social Psychology Scientific Impact Award (2011). Devine is a Fellow and Charter Member of the Association for Psychological Science. She is also a member of the Society of Experimental Social Psychology (SESP) and Fellow of the Society of Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) (1997) and SPSSI (2000). Devine has served on the SESP Executive Committees (2003-2006), SPSP Executive Committee (1999-2001), and the Association for Psychological Science Board of Directors.  She currently serves on the Publication Committee for the Association for Psychological Science and is the President-Elect of SPSP and the Association for Psychosocial Science Board of Directors. Devine has received numerous awards for excellence in teaching at the local (University of Wisconsin – Madison campus and system-wide awards) and national level (APA Division 2 Robert S. Daniel Award for Excellence in Teaching).  Devine has served as associate editor (1996-1999) and editor (2000-2006) of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology: Attitudes and Social Cognition.  She currently serves as Editor of the Advances in Experimental Social Psychology.  Devine has served been Chair of the Department of Psychology for 3 years.  She is widely regarded on campus as a highly effective and innovative chair.  Her contributions were recognized by the Dean of the College of Letters and Science in 2010 in the form of a College of Letters and Science Distinguished Service Award.  
 

Becky Blust, M.S.E.
 
Professor Blust is the coordinator for UD’s Design and Manufacturing Clinic and serves on the advisory committee for the School of Engineering’s Innovation Center. Professor Blust also serves on the Department Faculty Development Committee and has served as a University Faculty Mediator for the Associate Provost at UD.

Professor Blust was the co-PI on a $200,000 NSF STEM grant and currently serves as the academic advisor to the UD Women’s Engineering Sorority (Phi Sigma Rho). She has participated in UD’s Women in Engineering Summer Camp for the past 10 years and Explore Engineering. Professor Blust is dedicated to community service and has developed and participated in the Lunch Buddies program, which pairs college female engineering students with 6th and 7th grade girls every Friday to do STEM activities. She has also served as the director of Camp Invention, a program that fosters creativity and invention among K-5th graders. 

Dr. Wayne Jones
 

J. Wayne Jones is an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Materials Science and Engineering. He is also associate director of ADVANCE at the University of Michigan and director of the ADVANCE Program in the College of Engineering. ADVANCE is an NSF and University sponsored program focused on increasing the numbers of tenure-track women and under-represented minorities in the STEM disciplines. He holds a Ph.D. in materials science from Vanderbilt University

 

He served as Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education in the College of Engineering from 1996 to 2001 and he served as interim chair of MSE in 1992. He served as president of TMS (a 12,000 member materials society) in 1999 and has served on the boards of directors of TMS and the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers. He was elected a fellow of ASM International (a 50,000 member materials society) in 2000. In 2007 he received the Harold H. Johnson Diversity Award from the University of Michigan. In 2010 he ASM International’s Alfred Easton White Distinguished Teacher Award, the societies highest honor for materials science teaching excellence.
