Addressing the Underrepresentation of African-Americans in Counseling and Psychology Programs
Haizlip, Breyan N.
College Student Journal, v46 n1 p214-222 Mar 2012
Over the last two decades, there has been an upward trend in the number of African-American doctoral students completing counseling and psychology programs. However, despite these trends, African-American faculty continue to be significantly underrepresented as counseling educators and psychology faculty. Similarly, counseling education programs continue to report challenges with the recruitment and retention of African-American faculty. Thus, the purpose of this article is to highlight the underrepresentation of African-American faculty in counseling and psychology programs and to discuss strategies for mentoring African American students into the professorate and retaining African-American counselor education faculty to create a sustainable pipeline for racial minority students.
