This chapter describes an innovative program focused on structural changes affecting faculty resources, career experiences, and productivity metrics at Michigan Technological University, a STEM-dominant research university in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. ADVANCE Matrix Process: University Programs (hereafter referred to as AMP-UP) emerged out of proposal-preparation efforts for an NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation grant directed at addressing inequities and obstacles to career success for women, underrepresented, underserved, and intersectional faculty in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields (see NSF ADVANCE).
