Our Faculty of Color

“Boston is the place you go to get smarter,” says Saida Grundy, assistant professor of sociology and African American studies. Intellectual and cultural stimulation attracted many of our faculty of color. Rafael Ortega, a professor of anesthesiology at Boston University’s School of Medicine, who has worked here for more than 30 years, says, “I can’t think of too many other environments where I’d rather be spending my life, both professionally and as a citizen.” See how they, and others, found their community.
