The VISIBLE Affiliated Faculty program aims to help Villanova build a community of practitioners and scholars with an interest in bringing inclusive leadership theory and practice to their profession. The group includes faculty members from all ranks and every college at the University, with representation from a wide range of social identities. In 2022-2023, members met three times per semester as an active working group to: read and discuss relevant scholarship and media, build networks and skill sets create opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration, engage in purposeful conversation, and explore and test ideas.
Since the first cohort was recruited in 2020, the program's purpose has evolved from its initial goal of establishing a mechanism for STEM faculty who are women or members of minoritized groups to provide feedback on VISIBLE initiatives.
This program will be on hiatus in 2023-2024.
