9780761854418: Race, Women of Color, and the State University System: Critical Reflections

Race, Women of Color, and the State University System focuses on challenges women of color experience or have experienced while teaching or pursuing administrative duties within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The book systematically examines how women of color ―- administrators, faculty, and staff ―- cope with the demands of the profession, their disciplines, the expectations from the system, and the isolation that comes with working in institutions and/or environments that are predominately all white. The book identifies challenges that are unique to the state system, although they may be applicable to the academy in general. Contributors, through their testimonies and shared experiences, provide academic tools and strategies to navigate the academy successfully.

Review:

...A splendid array of narratives....This collection presents important lessons of history and survival for other women of color in higher education across the nation and holds implications for students of color, as well. Unprecedented in its subject matter, this volume brings together the unequivocal voices of these women who have often been silenced and marginalized. (Lena Ampadu, professor and assistant chair, Department of English, director, African American Studies Program, Towson University)

The book is provocative in nature; there is an increasing urgency to pause and evaluate the ways in which women of color are provided access, involvement, and rewards in institutions of higher education. (Angela Carrasquillo, professor emerita, Graduate School of Education, Fordham University)

The focus on the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) does not detract from the analysis but rather it adds the specificity related to decision-making that could illuminate practices in other contexts. The poignancy of the narratives...and [the women's] unique perspectives enhance the existing body of work on women in academia, while expanding on the particularities of the experiences of women of color....This book is as timely as its content is critical. (Xaé Alicia Reyes, associate professor, Department of Education, University of Connecticut-Storrs)
