The Faculty Women of Color in the Academy (FWCA) National Conference is a unique educational and professional development conference that provides women faculty, university administrators, post-doctoral and graduate students, and undergraduates with a forum to network, engage and learn with peers from around the country. The two-day conference motivates and inspires participants to meet their professional goals. Through this high-quality, participatory, inclusive and interactive event FWCA participants:

  • Gain lessons, ideas, tools, and strategies to bring back to their institutions, organizations, and communities. 
  • Make new contacts and build lasting relationships. 
  • Are inspired, motivated, energized, and empowered.

The two-day conference features prominent  women of color scholars as keynote speakers, panelists, performers, and workshop facilitators. This year's speakers are Patricia Hill Collins, Distinguished University Professor of Sociology Emerita at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Charles Phelps Taft Professor Emerita of African American Studies at the University of Cincinnati and Rosann Santos, founder of Latinas in Higher Education, Inc. as well as the director of Alumni Relations at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City.

The conference also offers the 2020 Faculty Women of Color in the Academy Pre-Conference Writing Retreat on April 19, 2020.
