OASIS Leadership & Professional Development Program


The OASIS Leadership and Professional Development program is designed to promote inclusive community, combat isolation, and mitigate against bias that can negatively shape the experiences of women faculty who may often face unique needs and challenges as they navigate higher ranks and leadership in academia.

All faculty are encouraged to apply.


OASIS attends to the unique needs and challenges women faculty may face in academia through six months of intensive career development support where faculty:

  • Expand leadership and communication skills

  • Build career-enhancing networks at Rutgers

  • Increase scholarly productivity and professional visibility

  • Enhance life-work integration and resiliency

  • Advance their careers
