Black Women in the Academy


The Black Women in the Academy Conference focuses on identifying and seeking solutions to issues facing women of African descent in higher education. It seeks to represent our diversity and uniqueness, our strengths and our challenges across higher education inclusive of community colleges, predominately white institutions and historically black colleges and universities. The conference welcomes staff, faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. We are all engaged in making it possible for more of us to achieve our professional dreams.
