Mentoring in the Community College
Haynes-Burton, Susan
Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, v3 p57-70 2007
Community colleges are crucial to American economic progress and are the gateways for students of color to enter higher education. The enrollment of students of color has soared in the last three decades, increasing 61.3% since 1986. However, the majority of community college faculty and administrators remains predominantly White. A more diverse faculty must be recruited and retained in community colleges to meet the needs of this diverse student population.
