"Dangerous Work": Improving Conditions for Faculty of Color in the Community College
Levin, John S.; Jackson-Boothby, Adam; Haberler, Zachary; Walker, Laurencia
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v39 n9 p852-864 2015
This qualitative investigation of the experiences of faculty of color at community colleges identifies current conditions for this population and suggests potentials for ameliorating conditions that inhibit their job satisfaction. We argue that the current conditions for faculty of color, based upon their expressed experiences at the community colleges, are deleterious to their professional performance, to their positive self-image, and to their contributions to their institutions. Alterations to these current conditions are unlikely without systemic institutional change. Indeed, without improvement to these conditions, the job satisfaction of faculty of color is not likely to change.
