Howe-Barksdale, Sydney
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Seton Hall University
Globalization and privatization have begun to destabilize the patterns of university professional work and campus community. African American Women Administrators battle the unique challenges of racial and gender discrimination as well as the intersection of these issues. AAWAs face feelings of isolation and lack of trust, and struggles over power and influence. The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether a sense of community exists for African American Women Administrators and if so, to what extent AAWAs perception of community reduced their feelings of isolation, etc. The qualitative data collected gave insight to the limited perception of community felt and the successful strategies that AAWAs employed to navigate and negotiate effectively at William Paterson University of New Jersey.
