Academic Motherhood for Counselor Educators: Navigating through the Academic Pipeline
Stinchfield, Tracy A.; Trepal, Heather
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v32 n2 p91-100 Jun 2010
Recent research has suggested that children are a hindrance for female faculty members in making tenure, due partially to reproduction and the quest for tenure timelines being incompatible (Mason and Goulden 2004; Young and Wright 2001). This article presents an emerging profile of 70 counselor educator mothers as they navigate their way through the academic pipeline towards tenure. Results indicate a significant difference between non-tenured and tenured faculty's perceptions of balance between work and family life. Implications for educators and future research are presented.
