Room: Hub, 3rd floor

Scholars of Color in Communication (SCC) invites you to our second annual public dialogue with faculty from across the Five Colleges. The event is co-sponsored by the Department of Communication.
Scholars of Color in Communication is an organization for graduate students, faculty, and staff of color in the Department of Communication at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The purpose of this group is threefold. First, to create a space for networking and mentoring, as well as to share concerns, strategies, hope, and achievements. Second, to advocate for institutional support that increases the enrollment, hiring, and retention of people of color—students, faculty, and staff—in Communication as a department and as a discipline. Third, to fight systemic oppression, specifically around issues of race, by denouncing racism and xenophobia, and promoting an intersectional understanding of race with concern for class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and religion.
The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
