Learning more about the role of the academic department in LACs may improve faculty selection, development, support, and retention.

Linder, Chris; Quaye, Stephen John; Lange, Alex C.; Roberts, Ricky Ericka; Lacy, Marvette C.; Okello, Wilson Kwamogi – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Students with minoritized identities have been engaged in campus activism as a way to hold institutional leaders accountable for addressing oppression. What is particularly unique about these activists is that they often advocate for change as a way to survive in their minoritized bodies. Because these activists are working to address…

Montero-Hernandez, Virginia; Arines, Elsa López; García, Marta Caballero – Review of Higher Education, 2019
We use an interpretative approach to understand female faculty's family-work dilemmas and the implications for their mental health. We interviewed sixteen female faculty at a public state university in Mexico. We identified four narratives (self-castigated perception, the unsupportive organization, the eternal caregiver, and self-care) to explain…

Sotirin, Patty; Goltz, Sonia M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
We employ a feminist phenomenological methodology to explore the lived meaningfulness of the academic dual career.

Following an analysis of focus group interviews with dual career academic…

Parker, Tara L.; Neville, Kathleen M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019

When White students in particular face African American faculty in class, they often exhibit negative attitudes and inappropriate behavior. Using racial identity development and…
