African American Female College and University Presidents: Experiences and Perceptions of Barriers to the Presidency
Jackson, Sandra; Harris, Sandra
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v5 n2 p119-137 Apr 2007
This study was an investigation of the experiences and perceptions of barriers to the presidency of 43 African American female college and university presidents. Findings suggested that exclusion from informal networks, lack of preparation and lack of career goals were primary barriers. Strategies to overcome these barriers included exceeding job expectations, being visible and developing leadership skills. Mentoring was also suggested as a way to overcome barriers.
