The Influence of Campus Climate and Urbanization on Queer-Spectrum and Trans-Spectrum Faculty Intent to Leave
Garvey, Jason C.; Rankin, Susan
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v11 n1 p67-81 Mar 2018
Prior scholarship offers that queer-spectrum and trans-spectrum faculty often experience hostile and uninviting institutional climates (Bilimoria & Stewart, 2009; Rankin, 2003; Sears, 2002). The results of a 2010 study (Rankin, Weber, Blumenfeld, & Frazer, 2010) suggest that these experiences may lead lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) faculty to leave their institutions. In this secondary analysis of the data from the 2010 study, we examine the influence of campus climate and institutional urbanization on intent to leave among queer/trans-spectrum faculty. The findings suggest that a significant relationship exists between faculty members' desire to leave and campus climate. The results also offer that queer/trans-spectrum faculty at institutions in town/rural environments are more likely to seriously consider leaving their institutions.
