Allia’s primary area of research is Race & Ethnicity in the US. She draws on her background as an Ethnic Studies faculty member to support faculty professional development, particularly on issues of inclusive teaching. She helps colleagues deepen their understandings of the importance of community-building in the classroom, anti-racist pedagogies, and student engagement. Together with her colleagues, she has worked to develop ART-C, a digital archive of anti-racist public art and scholarship. In addition, Allia facilitates a faculty and staff learning community focused on supporting first-generation students. This year she is also a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Arts & Humanities and is actively involved in both the WOC Faculty Network and the Culture, Power, Difference writing group on campus.
