Hook, K., & Johnson, B. J. (2011). African American Male Faculty Satisfaction: Does Institutional Type Make a Difference?.Journal of African American Males in Education, 2(2), 167 – 187.
This qualitative study explored the job satisfaction of 16 tenure-line, African American male faculty at a historically Black university and a predominantly White institution. The common themes found in this study were autonomy and flexibility, location, institutional fit, and salary. In addition, there were some themes that were unique to institutional type such as the opportunity to give back to students and student diversity. Findings provide insight for institutional leaders to understand what influences the satisfaction of African American male faculty in different institutional contexts.
