9 episodes
The purpose of this space is to create community for underrepresented faculty to have crucial conversations about navigating and being successful in Predominantly White Institution (PWI) or homogenized areas of campus. This space is designed for the underrepresented faculty, which refers to groups of people who are traditionally and currently represent a lower proportional numbers of minorities on a homogenous campus, regarding socio-economic status, culture, religion, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation and gender identity. We strive to create inspiring and engaging discussions that are as diverse as the under-represented faculty we serve.
