What are the experiences of faculty of color at traditionally white institutions (TWIs)
of higher education (IHE)? In what ways do faculty of color at TWIs of IHE cope with/handle struggles/defeats and successes in the workplace? In what ways can college/university administrators and colleagues support and retain faculty of color? This book seeks to answer these questions and address issues of recruitment, retention, and support of faculty members of color. Additionally, the editors hope to provide insight into the higher education experiences of faculty of color to their colleagues and administrators. It is our hope that renewed understanding of these experiences will positively influence levels and quality of support.

Review quote

In Faculty of Color Navigating Higher Education, a racially and ethnically diverse group of authors share personal experiences of being faculty members in predominantly white institutions of higher learning. The storied experiences are told through a scholarly lens that offers the reader theoretical frameworks of culture and an introspective view of how the frameworks play out in lived experiences. Truly an enlightening read for all humans and especially those involved in higher education. -- Cynthia K. Valenciano, PhD, Director, Teacher Development Center, Chicago State University
