    Minority Voices in Higher Education: Toward a Global Majority provides aspiring and practicing faculty members with a timely and complete exploration of the issues they are likely to face during their career. Through a collection of contributed chapters written by faculty members from a variety of institutions, the text addresses issues of mentorship, microaggressions, gender, race, sexual minority, disability, and other matters that are often unaddressed by the majority within the academy.

    The text examines topics that assist readers in higher education career planning, including professional development, the growth of distance learning models, the role of educators within a global society, and considerations surrounding tenure. Readers explore the historical and ongoing impact of the civil rights movement, best practices for securing a job, balancing personal and professional life at the academy, and navigating professional negotiations. Dedicated chapters discuss special education and intersectionality, the challenges and opportunities for people of color in higher education, the experiences of international faculty in U.S. higher education, and more.

    Minority Voices in Higher Education is an ideal resource for students interested in pursuing a career in academia, as well as faculty members interested in continuing to learn and grow within their chosen profession.
