The Office of Research, Innovation, and Collaboration (ORIC) is designed to promote a robust research environment and ethical scholarly engagement with a focus on supporting the entire Spelman community and its scholars. The vision statement for ORIC is to "empower the Spelman Community to achieve and share scholarly excellence".
The ORIC Team and I are happy to present to you a "one-stop shop" to assist you in learning more about your colleagues and their scholarly excellence. We hope that as you review information about them and utilize the resources available, it would motivate you to develop collaborations. Thus, the name "ORIC Faculty Collaboration Hub". Welcome to the C-Hub!

My latest research project started as a tongue-in-cheek discussion of a question: Was Donald Trump the epitome of neoliberalism or the harbinger of its demise? Talking through that question with my writing partner, Edward K. Chan of Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, led us down a bleak path that brings together white power, which we see as the contemporary form of violent white nationalism, and neoliberalism as the current form of racial capitalism.
