Self-Will, Power, and Determination: A Qualitative Study of Black Women Faculty and the Role of Self-Efficacy
McNeely Cobham, B. Afeni; Patton, Lori D.
NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, v8 n1 p29-46 2015
In the following study, the authors sought to understand how self-efficacy contributed to the career success of five tenured Black women faculty employed at two predominantly White institutions. Investigating the level of self-efficacy was significant in understanding the behavior, attitudes, and strategies of study participants. The findings suggest that a high level of self-efficacy was engendered among participants and facilitated perseverance toward their career goals. Specifically, participants relied on lessons and values instilled during their upbringing, their survival during difficult situations, and ability to seek support and resources.
