Through My Lens (1999, Center For The Education Of Women.)

The video project

Through My Lens was completed in the fall of 1999. The video was produced to capture the experiences of women of color faculty at U-M as a part of a broad undertaking to create a dialogue that would lead to promoting reform in the recruitment, retention, and overall satisfaction of women of color faculty in academe.The 27-minute presentation captures salient commentary by women of color faculty on such pertinent themes as: campus climate, isolation/lack of community, balance issues between career and family, and recruitment/retention issues.The targeted audiences of the video include college and university administrators, faculty and students who are considering careers in the academy.
