FOC Community Events & Programs

Finding community, both on and off campus, can be a challenge. We offer a number of events and programs to connect Faculty of Color to each other and to resources to help promote faculty productivity, camaraderie, and general well-being.

Fall Semester Forums



Faculty of Color Community Dinners

FoC dinners give faculty a chance to connect with colleagues from across campus. These are informal gatherings, but each one has a theme that aims to get at some of the issues that affect us on and off campus. For each dinner, a few colleagues will offer some reflections to lead us in discussion.
