Kerry Ann Rockquemore

Kerry Ann Rockquemore is an author and speaker in the field of faculty development and leadership. She spent the early years of her professional career climbing the academic ladder while writing about interracial families. She is author of Beyond Black: Biracial Identity in America (2001, 2007), Raising Biracial Children (2005), and over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. Kerry Ann’s research has been featured in numerous media outlets such as the New York Times and ABC’s 20/20. After Kerry Ann became a tenured professor (at the University of Illinois at Chicago), her focus shifted towards improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for professional development, writing productivity, and work/life balance. Her award-winning work with under-represented faculty led to the publication of her most recent book The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul (2008). Kerry Ann now provides workshops for new faculty members at colleges across the United States, leads a popular online discussion forum for under-represented faculty, and works with a select group of new faculty each semester in her Faculty Success Program. She wrote a series of columns for Inside Higher Ed designed to help new faculty members advance toward tenure. She can be contacted via e-mail at KerryAnn@newfacultysuccess.com
