The Faculty Residency Program provides an opportunity for selected tenured and tenure-track UNCF faculty members to take up to a semester away from their home institutions to complete or begin a scholarly project. The Programs Office helps to facilitate residencies at selected sites including Harvard University’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute, New York University’s Faculty Resource Network and Emory University’s James Weldon Johnson Institute for Advanced Interdisciplinary Study. In addition, there are two international Faculty Residency sites: the University of the Western Cape in South Africa and the Steve Biko Institute in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Other sites are subject to review by and approval from the UNCF/Mellon Programs Office.
