Welcome to Teaching in Color! 

This podcast gives voice to the teaching experiences of faculty of color who've been silenced, marginalized and ignored, their careers destroyed for far too long, most often by the allies presumed to support them. A thriving diverse faculty is essential for a thriving and successful student body, campus and community culture.

Faculty of color - find affirmation, validation and empowerment here. Faculty and administrator allies - take note and then take action. Teaching in Color shares how.

In this two-part series, we are going to talk with my bestie, Rochelle L. Woods about the importance of negotiating for the teaching conditions you need, what gets in the way, and the secret to getting over your fear of the “no”.

Part Two

In the second episode of this two-part series, Rochelle talks about how you sometimes need to do layers of negotiations to get to the right person; why she never hears “no”; and everything you need for a winning negotiation plan. If you are nervous about negotiating, or believe it will be combative, you absolutely have to listen to this episode. 

Please check out Rochelle’s website at, and send her an email at for a copy of the handout we mention in this episode. You can contact me if you need support (or maybe to help you pinpoint exactly which teaching conditions you need to negotiate for!) –
