Sara’s Story

The Board of Trustees officially voted to give me tenure this April, so thank you for the letter of support, and all that STEM-UP Network did to help me succeed.  I started with STEM-Up’s Leadership Development and Mentoring programs and participated in networking events and a three-day Writing Retreat.  My Leadership Peer Group still has dinner about 3 times a year, and we have achieved quite a bit as a group:  1 full professor promotion, 2 T&P promotions, 2 NSF grants awarded, 1 Junior Endowed Scholarship, 1 successful sabbatical, and several papers in top journals. The impact has been truly impressive.
