Rosetta Ross Recognized for Contributions as a Scholar and Mentor

October 2020

Rosetta Ross
Rosetta E. Ross, Ph.D., professor of religion, has been featured in the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) Women of Color Scholars’ Series for her work with The Angella P. Current-Felder Women of Color (WOC) Scholars program. Dr. Ross was one of the first scholars to explore religion and Black women’s activism during the civil rights movement in the United States. She became the chair of the WOC mentoring program in 2008 with the mission of helping the program evolve to attend more fully to the success of the scholars. This month, during GBHEM’s annual fall board of directors’ meeting, $7,500 was raised for the WOC program in recognition of Ross’s hard work with the program.
