Journal of Higher Education, v80 n5 p538-563 Sep-Oct 2009
This study applies the principles of critical race theory to examine quantitatively the experiences of a national sample of 37,582 faculty. Among the key factors influencing retention and satisfaction are campus racial climate, autonomy and independence, and the review and promotion process. Results support the value of examining faculty of color in the aggregate and of disaggregating racial categories. (Contains 4 tables and 3 footnotes.)
