Abstract

Three faculty women from Seattle University--Mary-Antoinette Smith, Pamela Taylor, and Natasha Martin--present their own remarks, plus papers from Sharon Cumberland, Mo-Kyung Sin, Sharon Suh, also from Seattle University. The panelists provide an overview of an SU-funded Justice Faculty Fellowship Seminar, with each presenting a personal narrative of the academic challenges that drew her to participate in the seminar and how it impacted her visions for success in the academy. The panelists encourage attendees to set goals and envision solutions for eradicating problematic and distressing realities for faculty of color on colleges and universities throughout the U.S.
