Why So Few? Faculty of Color in Higher Education pp. 131-146 $100.00
Authors:  (Rosina M. Becerra and Susan M. Drange)
This chapter provides an overview of some of the processes used by many institutions of higher education for recruiting and retaining faculty of color. While the goal of diversity is commendable, the proportion of faculty of color in tenured and tenured track positions in higher education has remained relatively unchanged. The authors lay out some of the issues that make current processes fail to achieve their goal. They provide strategies that will assist in moving the goal of recruitment and retention of faculty of color forward. Real institutional change, however, will only be achievable when the current departmental faculty who make the decisions realize that diversity is no longer just a desirable goal but a necessary one if the academy is to remain the educators of an ever more diverse population.
