Congratulations to Dr. Darshon Anderson for receiving a grant from APA’s Commission on Ethnic Minority Recruitment, Retention, and Training in Psychology!!
This research will assess the number of ethnic minority male and female faculty members hired within departments of psychology from academic years 2000-2012 for two and four year colleges and universities in Arkansas. This project will also investigate the number of tenure vs. non-tenure track ethnic minority faculty. Finally, other factors influencing ethnic minority representation will be gathered such as administrative support for hiring, retention, faculty development for this population and barriers for employment.
