Distinguished Faculty Fellows

These eminent Rutgers faculty members contribute in singular ways to the struggle for global, racial, and social justice in such areas as public arts, education, health, public policy, and criminal justice. They serve as consultants to institute directors, mentor postdoctoral and faculty fellows, and contribute to the institute’s projects, programs, and community.

Senior Faculty Fellows

Senior faculty fellows are prominent members of the Rutgers faculty who serve as mentors for institute postdoctoral and faculty fellows and whose research, scholarship, and pedagogy contribute in singular ways to areas of concern in the struggle for global, racial, and social justice, including public arts, education, health, public policy, and criminal justice. The fellows participate in setting the vision and direction of the institute and contribute meaningfully to the institute’s projects, programs, and community. If they lead centers in related research areas on Rutgers’ campuses, the institute may also partner with their center on specific projects.

Visiting Scholars and Senior Consultants

These institute contributors are established scholars and creatives in their fields with a strong research agenda and public profile in topics related to global racial justice. Visiting scholars and consultants provide educational, artistic, and policy guidance on key institute programs and initiatives and find, in turn, a sound stage, worktable, and communities of care for their ideas.
