Latina Faculty Transcending Barriers: Peer Mentoring in a Hispanic-Serving Institution
Murakami, Elizabeth T.; Núñez, Anne-Marie
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v22 n4 p284-301 2014
In this article, the authors conducted a research metasynthesis of publications by a group of Latina tenure-track faculty participating in a peer mentoring group, the Research for the Educational Advancement of Latin@s (REAL) collaborative, housed in one Hispanic Serving Institution. Due to the small representation of Latinas in the academy, the significance of non-hierarchical peer-mentoring structures is observed as empowering Latina faculty to develop personal and/or professional transformation. We asked, "What peer mentoring strategies can Latina faculty employ to navigate academia?" These faculty members' experiences in building a scholarly community pose a counter-narrative to the historical isolation of underrepresented faculty in academia and suggest possibilities for women faculty of color to construct a personal and professional community in the academy.
