Black Faculty at Research Universities: Has Significant Progress Occurred?
Modica, Jonathon L.; Mamiseishvili, Ketevan
Negro Educational Review, v61 n1-4 p107-122 Spr-Win 2010
Changes in the representation, career advancement, and workplace perceptions of Black faculty at research universities in the United States over time, in comparison to White faculty were examined. Based on the analysis of data from the 1993, 1999, and 2004 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF) surveys, we found that although the overall representation and doctoral degree attainment of Black faculty had increased over time, they were still disproportionally represented among tenured and associate/full professor faculty positions. Findings also revealed that White faculty at research universities were tenured, held the rank of full professor, had been tenured, and had held senior ranks longer than Black faculty. Our study also revealed that although faculty workplace perceptions and attitudes had improved over time, Black faculty still perceived their institutions to be less fair to women. Also, they were significantly less satisfied than White faculty with their decision-making authority and with their jobs. (Contains 4 tables.)
