  • Product Description

Revision with unchanged content. Many predominantly white colleges and universities position themselves as champions of diversity and multiculturalism. These institutions claim to strive for more respectful learning and working environments, while at the same time overburdening their few faculty of color with diversity-related tasks that their co-workers are unwilling or unable to complete. This “cultural taxation” is a growing crisis in the world of post-secondary education. This book is the result of a four-year research project that explores how diversity-related workload and work role expectations impact faculty of color who work in predominantly white institutions. Five primary themes emerged from the data collected from narrative testimonios: 1) Cultural Taxation and Racist Bigotry, 2) Cultural Taxation and Convenience, 3) Cultural Taxation and Conscious Choice, 4) Cultural Taxation and Ignorance, and 5) Cultural Taxation and Pragmatism. The research findings strongly encourage college and university leaders to engage in critical dialogue about structural changes that must occur to overcome historical bigotry that privileges some and marginalizes others.
