Advocates & Allies for Equity - Advocates and Allies Institutionalization Committee

The Advocates & Allies Institutionalization Committee (AAIC) is composed of faculty and staff who want to further gender and minority equity at Ohio State. The AAIC’s role as outlined in the NSF grant is to broaden and institutionalize the program. The committee is working to tailor the program to the specific needs of Ohio State.

The Women's Place serves as the home of the Advocates & Allies for Equity initiative and Jennifer Beard, director of The Women's Place, chairs the institutionalization committee.
