Racial Privilege in the Professoriate: An Exploration of Campus Climate, Retention, and Satisfaction


This study applies the principles of critical race theory to examine quantitatively the experiences of a national sample of 37,582 faculty. Among the key factors influencing retention and satisfaction are campus racial climate, autonomy and independence, and the review and promotion process. Results support the value of examining faculty of color in the aggregate and of disaggregating racial categories.
