Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA)

Welcome to the CJC IDEA website. Our faculty and staff are working to ensure that our college becomes a preeminent institution on matters of inclusion, diversity, equity and access at all levels of activities.

On this site you’ll find information about CJC diversity initiatives, including the work of the CJC Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (IDE) Committee — a shared governance group co-chaired by both faculty and staff that advocates toward an inclusive and equitable environment in the service of living up to the goals stated above.

IDEA Q&A

Dr. Jasmine McNealy

Dr. McNealy captured while eating ice cream.

Dr. Jasmine McNealy is an associate professor in the Department of Media Production, Management, and Technology (formerly Telecommunication). Her research focuses on privacy, online media and communities. 

In July, she and colleague Stephanie T. Nguyen launched “I, Obscura,” a zine focusing on dark patterns — deceptive practices used by the business sector to get online users to make decisions that may not be in their best interest. Dark patterns are in industries ranging from financial services and smart home devices to related children’s technologies.

We learned more about Dr. McNealy, like her favorite movie as a kid and what she thinks the conversation surrounding topics of race and identity at UF should be. Check out her Q&A here
