The Inclusive Future Faculty Initiative


The Inclusive Future Faculty (IFF) Initiative creates opportunities for faculty of color to serve as career ambassadors to students of color. Undergraduate and graduate URM students are invited to use the IFF Field Kit (available soon!) to videotape in-person interviews of professors of color at their universities. Interviewees will be asked to share stories about their journeys to the professoriate as well as the realities of their career. The interviews will then be submitted to the IFF Initiative via its online portal and used to develop a searchable digital video library that will be a resource for those wanting to learn about the professoriate.
