Intersectionalities in the Ivory Tower Symposium Lecture Series

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. Dr. Sinclair-Chapman is now a tenured professor and the Director for Research on Diversity and Inclusion at Purdue University. 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
