Center for the Advancement of Multicultural Perspective in the Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities (CAMPSSAH)
The new Center for the Advancement of Multicultural Perspectives on Social Science, Arts, and Humanities (CAMPSSAH) builds on the Center for the Advancement of Multicultural Perspectives on Science (CAMPOS) mission to encompass the multicultural perspectives of academic faculty in social science, arts, and humanities as well as STEM. Both Centers focus on expanding the presence of women and underrepresented faculty in those disciplines
Dr. Kimberly Nettles-Barcelón will be the inaugural Faculty Director for CAMPSSAH. She will work closely with Academic Affairs to strengthen the recruitment, hiring and retention practices under the Impact Recruitment Initiative (IRI) and to support URM faculty especially but also other faculty of color and faculty whose work brings multicultural perspectives in social sciences, humanities and the arts. She began at UC Davis as an Assistant Professor in Women’s Studies in 2001 and is currently an Associate Professor in the Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies Department. Her research, teaching, and service have given her insight on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion from multiple perspectives. Read more about Dr. Nettles-Barcelón's appointment.
