ABOUT FOCUS: Faculty of California United in Scholarship advances two central goals of the UC mission producing knowledge and advancing diversity—by supporting the academic career success of UC faculty from several campuses and many disciplines whose research, service, and/or teaching focus on historically marginalized groups. FOCUS offers two-day research grant development and publication workshops, two per year over the course of three years. Providing expert research support to complete publications and submit grants is a proven way to help faculty flourish at an R1 university. In addition, this targeted intervention creates the opportunity for invited faculty to develop professional relationships around a shared commitment to producing “R1 scholarship” and advancing the UC’s diversity, equity, and inclusion goals. The research and publication success and satisfaction of such dedicated faculty must become a central concern of the university for retention reasons and to build a reliable pipeline for all professors to reach full.
