Jackson, Sandra; Harris, Sandra
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v3 n4 p235-253 Oct 2005
The purpose of this study was to investigate the career paths and educational preparation of African American female college presidents. Forty-three of the 59 college presidents responded to a Likert-type survey. Findings indicated that African American female college presidents were more likely to hold a doctorate in education and came to the presidency from a variety of positions, often from other institutions or outside of education.
