Career-Life Balance

Career-Life Balance (CLB) is the term used by NSF to describe the concept that family and career are compatible pursuits. The perceived incompatibility between having a family and choosing a career in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) is documented as a reason that students, especially women, abandon STEM careers during graduate school.  For this reason, and in response to student demand, I established the STEM CLB Resource Center at my former university.  I am delighted that CLB resources are in place at my current university, and I am excited to participate in efforts to expand and innovate CLB resources at MSU.
