Faculty of Color Collective

The Faculty of Color Collective (FoCC), under the Office of the Provost and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, provides a range of resources and opportunities for professional development and community building to tenure-track and long-term contract faculty of color at Brandeis.

The Collective fosters peer mentorship through virtual writing and research accountability groups. It also sponsors a communal meal each semester to build community among faculty of color within and across the School of Arts and Sciences, Heller, and IBS. This community building for diverse faculty is an integral component of recruiting and retaining exceptional scholars who come to Brandeis.

Moreover, there are opportunities to showcase the scholarship of such faculty through various gatherings such as research presentations or lunch-and-learn events. This Collective is supported by funds provided by the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences.
