"How Do You Advance Here? How Do You Survive?" An Exploration of Underrepresented Minority Faculty Perceptions of Mentoring Modalities
Espino, Michelle M.; Zambrana, Ruth E.
Review of Higher Education, v42 n2 p457-484 Win 2019
This article contrasts perceptions among 58 under-represented minority (URM) faculty employed at U.S. research-extensive universities who reported an absence of mentoring or experienced informal or formal mentoring modalities. Key findings reveal a mentoring glass ceiling that affects URM faculty career paths: an absence of mentoring can lead to significant career miscalculations; well-intentioned mentors can devalue faculty scholarship; lack of senior faculty accountability for observed disengagement from faculty career development; and inadequate mentorship often limits access to social networks and collaborative research opportunities. Recommendations are offered for developing effective formal mentoring initiatives that reflect an institutional investment in early-career URM faculty.
