African American Administrators and Staff
Wright, Dianne; Taylor, Janice D.; Burrell, Charlotte; Stewart, Gregory
Metropolitan Universities, v17 n2 p58-68 2006
This article explores the issues of African American participation in the administrative ranks of the academy. The authors find that African Americans tend to hold positions that are marginal in academic organizations, lacking power and influence, and that not much has changed over recent decades. Forces influencing this condition are explored, and examples are given of innovative institutional strategies for increasing leadership opportunities for African American administrators.
