The Influence of Cultural Social Identity on Graduate Student Career Choice
Haley, Karen J.; Jaeger, Audrey J.; Levin, John S.
Journal of College Student Development, v55 n2 p101-119 Mar 2014
This study examines and enriches understanding of the career choice process for graduate students of color. Social identity theory (SIT) is used as a framework to expand our understanding of how and why graduate students choose (or do not choose) faculty careers. Graduate students' cultural social identities influenced their career choice beyond work-life balance as they sought an integrated life that included values, beliefs, and perspectives that represent their cultural community.
