Kerry Ann Rockquemore is executive director of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. Her scholarship has focused on interracial families, biracial identity, and the politics of racial categorization. She is author of Beyond Black and Raising Biracial Children, as well as over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. After Kerry Ann became a tenured professor, her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for writing productivity and work/life balance.

Kerry Ann provides workshops for faculty at colleges across the U.S. and works with a select group of faculty each semester in the Faculty Success Program.
