Weaving Authenticity and Legitimacy: Latina Faculty Peer Mentoring
Núñez, Anne-Marie; Murakami, Elizabeth T.; Gonzales, Leslie D.
New Directions for Higher Education, n171 p87-96 Fall 2015
As an alternative to typical top-down mentoring models, the authors advance a conception of peer mentoring that is based on research about collectivist strategies that Latina faculty employ to navigate the academy. The authors advance recommendations for institutional agents to support mentoring for faculty who are members of historically underrepresented groups.
