Faculty Fellowship Program

The AACC FFP is a new, semester-long fellowship (conceived and coordinated by Dr. Sachelle M. Ford) that supports NC State faculty members’ research endeavors into African American and African diasporic cultures.

The new AACC Faculty Fellows are:

  • Dr. Terrance Ruth: “Impact of Virtual Communities and Culture on the Perception of Race: Western Contextual Examination of the Evolution of Racial Prejudice.”
  • Dr. Jason Coupet: “Communicating and learning from HBCU successes with bench marking science.”
  • Dr. Gloria T. Anderson: “Let’s Talk About ACP: An African-American Spiritual and Ethical Approach to Healthcare Decision-making and Advance Care Planning Program.”
  • Professor Francine Ott: “Fragile.”

The mission of the African American Cultural Center (AACC) is to cultivate the critical examination and exploration of African American diasporic cultures. The African American Cultural Center Faculty Fellowship Program (AACC FFP) has been established to support scholarly projects by NC State faculty that share this mission. The semester-long fellowship provides each fellow with a research fund in the amount of $600, research support from the AACC Library, and access to a shared office and collaborative workspace in the AACC. Fellows are expected to give one public talk about their research and attend other research talks in the faculty fellowship series.
