Our vision is to create a space where women of color doctoral candidates can work together to help each other complete their doctoral degrees. We envision women of color of different races, ethnicities and backgrounds coming together to create community.
We envision a group of serious, committed and dedicated sisterscholars who are highly motivated and for whom obtaining a doctoral degree is of the highest priority.
Since we, as women of color, do not generally receive equal support from the academic community, since the academy is often a hostile place for us, and since our intellectual development is often not taken seriously, our aim is to create a nurturing, non-competitive, respectful and intellectual space for ourselves.
Our vision is to validate and support the scholarly goals and ideas of sisterscholars and to maintain a community of interdisciplinary and institutionally diverse sisterscholars.
Here are profiles of some of our doctoral candidates:
- M. Liz Andrews

- Bathsheba Bryant-Tarpeh
