Early Turning Points in Professorial Careers of Women and Minorities.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n53 p71-79 Spr 1993

Mentoring and social networks are found to be significant in adaptation. The simple nature of the turning points suggests strategies for avoiding such marginalization. (Author/MSE)
