This article points out ways that technical and scientific communicationfaculty can integrate with NSF ADVANCE initiatives on their campuses. The author providesfaculty and program administrators ideas for using NSF ADVANCE as a professional developmenttool and to recognize the skills we contribute to large proposal-writing teams.
