Abstract

This arts based presentation is a call to action for the use of transnational “inclusive diversity” and intersectional paradigms at the Institutional level. These understandings have the potential to create new, generative experiences of Higher Education for all POC professors (and the POC graduate students we mentor as emerging professionals and, hopefully, professors too!) where the “invitations to diversify” are experienced as tokenism and where POC professors teach/research in academic exile - under-supported and under-funded. Inclusion demands respect, elevation and amplification of “diverse” faculty voices in University culture and shared governance which envisions creating opportunities for innovative problem solving in, and the evolution of, Higher Education in general. Only when the values of difference, interdependence, democracy and community are practiced while cultivating a culture of care and mutuality will Ivory Towers be dismantled and replaced with open spaces for all.
