The Black Faculty Network, in conjunction with La Colectiva and the International Faculty Network will be posting a new lecture series titled, "Intersectionalities in the Ivory Tower". This symposium lecture series is designed for students of color to speak with Dr. Sinclair-Chapman and talk more in-depth about her experiences at various institutions and her difficulties with the tenure process that most often reflect faculty of color.

Students will also have an opportunity to speak with Dr. Sinclair-Chapman one on one or in small groups.
The event, hosted and moderated by our very own Dr. Valerie Martinez-Ebers, will also be giving the Keynote speech discussing issues she has faced as a tenured professor. As a founder of the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences
