SOTA celebrates 20 years of legacy, scholarship and sisterhood

TAA congratulates Sisters of the Academy Institute (SOTA) on its 20th Anniversary!

Founded in 2001, SOTA’s mission is to facilitate the success of Black women in the Academy. Specifically, the organization aims to create an educational network of Black women in higher education in order to foster success in the areas of teaching, scholarly inquiry, and service to the community; facilitate collaborative scholarship among Black women in higher education; and facilitate the development of relationships to enhance members’ professional development.

SOTA is marking this milestone by launching its 20 for 20 Campaign. This campaign will feature a year-long series of monthly personal and professional workshops, seminars, signature programs and FUNraising activities.

TAA has been honored to partner with SOTA on a variety of programs through the years, and looks forward to continuing that partnership for years to come.
