What your colleagues say

"The OASIS program provided me with an opportunity to hone my interpersonal interactions and develop leadership skills."

“Since OASIS, I have had more than a dozen articles plus a book chapter published or accepted and received funding for three of my research projects.”

It was so empowering to get to know other women faculty across Rutgers, hear about their challenges and successes, and build a sense of community. OASIS continues to give me energy today, even at a distance of several years.”
