The Dean of the College of Medicine has  commissioned a study of the causes of disparity between male and female faculty in the College of Medicine (COM) in track assignment, promotion to higher ranks, and leadership positions, with the ultimate goal of identifying and implementing solutions to documented barriers.

The Dean's Committee on Women Faculty is coordinating the research project, which has been called the GRACE Project (Generating Respect for All in a Climate of academic Excellence).

The project is driven by hypotheses generated by College of Medicine faculty members and previous studies of gender disparities in institutional settings. The hypotheses are being analyzed with institutional data on faculty salaries, a survey of current faculty, in-depth interviews with randomly selected faculty. The study results will be compiled into a detailed final report and submitted for publication.
