Abstract

This study examined fifty (50) faculty members at four (4) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the Southern region of the United States. The main objective was to capture white faculty sentiments towards their employment at an HBCU and their ability to adjust to their minority status. Particular focus was placed on white faculty interactions with the Black student body, Black faculty peers, Black administrators, family, white peers, commitment to HBCU missions, academic rank, tenure, age, and gender. The reported experiences beg the discussion of HBCUs becoming more proactive in preparing white faculty for their immersion into the HBCU culture.
