African American Counselor Educators' Job Satisfaction and Perceptions of Departmental Racial Climate
Holcomb-McCoy, Cheryl; Addison-Bradley, Carla
Counselor Education and Supervision, v45 n1 p2-15 Sep 2005
Forty-eight African American counselor educators completed the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire-Short Form (D. J. Weiss, R. V. Dawis, G. W. England, & L. H. Lofquist, 1967), the Racial Climate Scale (R. J. Watts & R. T. Carter, 1991), and a biodata questionnaire. Results indicated that African American counselor educators' perceptions of departmental racial climate predicted their level of job satisfaction. However, African American counselor educators' job satisfaction was not related to their academic rank and tenure status. Implications for counselor education and future research are discussed.
