Faculty of Color Caucus

This caucus was developed by faculty to support and organize faculty of color and American Indian faculty statewide, to mobilize our collective voices to improve the working conditions for faculty of color and American Indian faculty at MinnState universities, and to encourage higher participation in union membership and in union leadership by faculty of color and American Indian faculty in the IFO.  

It is imperative that faculty challenge systemic oppression to empower marginalized members through innovative and intentional equity and inclusion initiatives. Faculty must be empowered to lead efforts to foster learning communities that respect the inherent worth of all students, faculty, and staff based on values of justice, inclusion, and equity. We strive for equity within our union to build solidarity, and ensure that our collective voice is an inclusive voice.

If you self-identify as faculty of color and/or American Indian faculty at a Minnesota State university, you are welcome to attend.  

Meetings include sharing our experiences, developing a collective vision for the group, and business items including electing/appointing leadership and MIC representatives. Scroll down to read summaries of previous meetings or leave a comment for the caucus leadership team.
