Minority faculty members at community colleges feel marginalized and "subordinated" to white faculty members, according to new research from the University of California at Riverside. Despite these frustrations, minority faculty members are deeply committed to the missions of their institutions and to their students, the study found. Researchers based their findings on interviews with faculty members at four community colleges in California. The report calls on community colleges to hire more minority faculty members. The study notes that while more than half of the students at community colleges in California are from under-represented minority groups, only 30 percent of faculty members are from under-represented minority groups.
