The 14 new essays in this collection, from under-represented faculty who teach at predominantly white colleges and universities, discuss both the tenure and promotion experiences of faculty of color and are not racial, ethnic, gender, cultural or discipline specific. The book is thus not only for aspiring graduate students of color and faculty of color desirous of outside mentoring but also for administrators interested in the professional development and dilemmas of faculty of color. Faculty of color describes how they navigated the complex terrain of higher education to achieve tenure or promotion. Most of the contributors are at the associate professor stage of their careers and some hold the rank of full professor.

The case for a flexible work schedule for faculty has beenrepeatedly made, with one policy recommendation being part-timepositions for tenure-track/tenured faculty (PTTT). Despite some ofthe benefits of this approach for both faculty and institutions,the PTTT concept is the least implemented policy for facultyflexibility and is poorly understood. This report offers the firstcomprehensive treatment of PTTT, suggesting that this mode offlexibility enhances recruitment, retention, and engagement offaculty, while offering value-added productivity, planningpotential, and faculty loyalty for the institution. Herbers provides data that explore how a PTTT policy can lead tofaculty success and satisfaction across the lifespan of a career,and likewise offers analogies and examples of well-establishedpractices that administrators across institution types can adapt tocreate their own policies. Administrators and faculty will find theauthor’s policy recommendations, best practices, andsolutions to common challenges to be a roadmap for stimulatingchange in their institutions. This is the 5th issue of the 40th volume of the Jossey-Bass seriesASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitiveanalysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thoroughresearch of pertinent literature and institutional experiences.Topics are identified by a national survey.

Some chapters might be more useful to student affairs practitioners. Others might be useful to teachers and administrators.

Many universities in the twenty-first century claim "diversity" as a core value, but fall short in transforming institutional practices. The disparity between what universities claim as a value and what they accomplish in reality creates a labyrinth of barriers, challenges, and extra burdens that junior faculty of color must negotiate, often at great personal and professional risk. This volume addresses these obstacles, first by foregrounding essays written by junior faculty of color and second by pairing each essay with commentary by senior university administrators. These two university constituencies play crucial roles in diversifying the academy, but rarely have an opportunity to candidly engage in dialogue. This volume harnesses the untapped collective knowledge in these constituencies, revealing how diversity claims, when poorly conceived and under-actualized, impact the university as an intellectual work environment and as a social filter for innovative ideas.
