More Rivers to Cross: The Status of African American Professors at Penn State University (UP) Part 1

This report covers a 15 year period between 2004-2018 documenting institutional racism in the hiring and retention of African American and black professors at the main campus of Penn State University. The report explicitly details the comparative patterns of hiring and retaining black faculty at the university and each college over a 15 year period. It also includes a literature review of the racial biases entailed in the use of student teaching evaluation forms. A subsequent report (Part 2) will be published presenting the results of a survey of black professors about their experiences with interpersonal and systemic racism and academic climate at University Park and the 24 Commonwealth campuses.
