Explores the challenges and benefits of marginalization (remaining at the borders) for college faculty of color, noting the risks and benefits of incorporation (moving toward the center of the organization). Highlights the importance of incorporation, noting what those who have succeeded consider their accomplishments (love of teaching, sense of accomplishment, and mentoring), and discusses the value of marginalization (to help change their universities).
