Education Administration, College of Education and Human Development, Texas
The phenomenological experiences of faculty of color teaching in predominantly white colleges and universities are rarely topics for dialogue, introspection and experiential learning. Much of the existing research in this area implies that we have yet to listen to the narratives of faculty of color in order to gain a better understanding of their challenges. Using information from the book she edited, Faculty of Color: Teaching in Predominantly White Colleges and Universities (Anker, 2006), Christine Stanley will share predominant themes and engage participants on the firsthand experiences of faculty of color teaching in predominantly White institutions. This session should particularly benefit those faculty, future faculty and administrators who desire to deepen their understanding of these issues and seek to engage in dialogue on developing effective recruitment and retention strategies for institutional change.
