Diverse Administrators in Peril
By

Rating
Diverse Administrators in Peril is the first in-depth examination of the work experiences of minority, female, and LGBT administrators in higher education. Written by two award-winning practitioners in higher education, this vivid and intensive study of American leadership from the inside out illuminates how the collision between everyday life and systems of power takes place in patterns of subtle discrimination. Based on scores of interviews with diverse administrators, the book examines patterns of racism, sexism, and heterosexism that persist in the highest administrative ranks and provides concrete strategies and models for inclusive leadership practices.

Reviews

"This is an important book. Institutions of higher education in the United States stand at a crossroads. We face tremendous challenges: global competition, heightened expectations, reduced budgets, revolutionary technological changes, and new populations to serve. Yet for leaders who do not look like the expectations that other people have, there is often responsibility without authority. This is an ambitious effort to show how such individuals have adapted and succeeded, and it is much needed in today's academy." -Chancellor Frank H. Wu, University of California Hastings College of Law "Barriers of discrimination, exclusion, and bias (both conscious and unconscious) must be replaced by inclusive and equitable practices. Chun and Evans provide troubling, but true, examples of current situations and excellent, clear recommendations for change." -Andy Brantley, President and CEO, College and University Professional Association for Human Resources
