LOGOTEACHING2    Diverse Faculty   |   Faculty Interest Group at Kingsborough



  The KCC/CUNY Diverse Faculty Interest Group was created to:

  • Offer KCC faculty from diverse backgrounds and from under-represented groups the opportunity to explore issues pertaining to faculty in higher education.  Specifically, the challenges that under-represented faculty (people of color; women; lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender individuals; and differently-abled people) experience in higher education.
  • Provide a forum in which the participants can discuss research, published articles, educational strategies and share resources pertaining to the specific needs of students and faculty from diverse/under-represented populations.
  • Foster the collaboration of diverse/under-represented faculty in the development and completion of individual or group scholarly and service activities.
  • Create a supportive and safe environment in which the participants can discuss professional concerns and receive feedback/information concerning the process of re-appointment, tenure and promotion.

Since Spring 2013, Juan Morales-Flores (Behavioral Sciences) and Kevicha Echols (Health, Physical Education & Recreation) serve as co-facilitators of the KCC/CUNY Diverse Faculty Interest Group (DFIG). The group meets monthly to discuss assigned readings, share their challenges, new initiatives and on-going projects.
