The UC Faculty Family Friendly Edge is a series of initiatives designed to develop and implement a comprehensive package of innovative policies and programs for ladder-rank faculty in the UC system, as well as to examine the role of institutions of higher education and federal granting agencies in leaks from the academic pipeline at all stages.
