 About WOCAP

The Women of Color in the Academy Project (WOCAP) is a campus-wide faculty network at U-M, committed to highlighting the work of women of color scholars, promoting their development and advocating for institutional change on their behalf.

Mission Statement
WOCAP is a supportive and inclusive community of women of color faculty at the University of Michigan that promotes the careers and wellbeing of woman of color faculty.

Vision Statement
Achieving a university where all women of color faculty experience success, leadership, visibility and representation at all levels of governance.

The campus-wide WOCAP faculty steering committee would like to extend an invitation to all instructional track faculty who are, or identify with, women of color, and would like to work together to call attention to structural barriers and promote solutions to enhance the success of women in color in academia.
