Black Faculty Caucus

Established in April of 2014, the Black Faculty Caucus (BFC) of the University of South Carolina exists to promote a strong sense of community, professional welfare, development and advocacy for Black faculty and the issues that concern and affect them.

We strive to address quality of life issues specific to Black faculty and provide opportunities to improve the social wellbeing of faculty, both within and outside of the university community. We also facilitate the professional welfare and development of Black faculty members through mentoring, cooperative research and other programs that are focused on improving the rate of faculty who obtain tenure, are promoted and are otherwise retained as faculty members at the University of South Carolina.

For more information about the Black Faculty Caucus, please refer to our Bylaws [pdf] or contact Dr. Lucy Annang Ingram, BFC chairperson by calling 803-777-4389 or emailing
