STEM-UP began as a collaborative project in Central Pennsylvania between three institutions of higher education (Shippensburg University, Elizabethtown College and Harrisburg University of Science and Technology).  The collaborative was seeded over four years with a $740,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.  STEM-UP focused on developing a sustainable professional climate across the region’s colleges and universities to promote the recruitment, retention, and advancement of academic women, particularly in STEM disciplines.  STEM-UP has grown to a network of over 400 individuals across the mid-Atlantic region who benefit from participation in the network and who support women thriving in STEM.
