The Faculty of Color Coalition (FOC) is a subcommittee of the TMCC Diversity Committee. Membership of FOC is voluntary and strives to include campus-wide representation from academic and administrative faculty who self-identify as faculty of color or faculty of color allies.
We seek to foster an environment that supports the voices of faculty of color and creates a greater sense of community and mutual support among the faculty and staff of color through mentoring and networking.
- Provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the discussion of relevant topics to faculty and staff of color at TMCC.
- Offer faculty of color an opportunity to feel connected, to learn from and help each other.
- Create a support group that will affect the success and retention of faculty of color.
- Further, identify and grow professional development programming addressing the needs unique to the faculty of color at TMCC.
- Support TMCC students through mentorship; Students of Color Mentorship Program.
- Provide recommendations and assistance for TMCC recruitment initiatives.
All meetings will take place online via Zoom unless otherwise noted.
