A Case Study Regarding the Short Tenure and High Turnover Rates of African American Female Presidents at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)
This research provided a deeper insight into the problem of short tenure rate and high turnover rate of African American female presidents at Historically Black Colleges and Universities through the use of a case study of interviews. This was accomplished by obtaining personal perspectives and lived experiences of those serving in the capacity of African American female presidents representing four classifications: retired, current, interim, and involuntary/voluntary separation. The framework used for this study was Black Feminism and the Critical Race Theory. The overall summary from the case study provided personal perceptions, insights, and recommendations from representatives of HBCU African American presidents regarding factors that contribute to the short tenure and high turnover rates of African American female presidents. These factors included the following three variables: 1) relationship with the Board of Trustees; 2) relationship with the oversight of the faculty, staff, and students; and 3) mentorship.
