Community College Culture and Faculty of Color
Levin, John S.; Haberler, Zachary; Walker, Laurencia; Jackson-Boothby, Adam
Community College Review, v42 n1 p55-74 Jan 2014
This investigation examines and explains the ways in which community college faculty of color construct their understandings of institutional culture. We investigate four community colleges in California through interviews with 31 full-time faculty of color. This faculty group expresses identity conflicts between their professional roles and their cultural identities. Their understandings of their institutions suggest that the culture of the community college is more complex and multi-faceted than that portrayed in the scholarly literature, which often portrays the institution as homogeneous and the faculty body as uniform.
