Predominantly white institutions have a reoccurring issue recruiting and retaining Black faculty to their universities. While there is a limited number of them on these campus, Black faculty eventually leave predominantly white institutions due to cultural taxation, racism, discrimination, and student, as well as other faculty members, disregarding of their work/knowledge within their discipline. These faculty members are not supported well within this institution as well. Through review of the literature, I suggest creating a mentorship program paired with training regarding the importance of diverse faculty and their needs to be able to be successful at a predominantly white institution.
