The Collaborative will provide scholarly and professional development opportunities for scholars and students whose research focuses on racism, racial equity, and racial justice.
Public Engagement and Impact
The Anti-Racism Collaborative will partner with the Center for Academic Innovation to provide programming for anti-racism scholars to explore diverse forms of public engagement. This might include special experiences including events, workshops and other learning opportunities, and space and time to network with other like-minded faculty across disciplines.
Anti-Racism Collaborative Postdoctoral Fellows
Through the Anti-Racism Collaborative, the NCID will partner with U-M diversity scholars and academic units to offer postdoctoral fellowships for early career scholars whose research/scholarship focuses on racism, racial equity, and/or racial justice. Priority will be given to applicants for whom there is strong potential for research collaboration with current projects led by U-M faculty and/or U-M academic units. Applications will require a strong development and mentoring plan with U-M faculty mentor(s). The NCID currently hosts a number of postdoctoral fellows whose research/scholarship focuses on social inequality and justice, who will participate in a broader scholarly and learning community with new Anti-Racism Collaborative Fellows. Fellows will be provided a variety of professional development and networking opportunities to support their scholarly and professional growth and development.
