Jackson, J. F. (2003). Toward administrative diversity: An analysis of the African-American male educational pipeline. The Journal of Men’s Studies,12(1), 43-60.
Using multiple national databases, this study examined African-American males throughout the educational pipeline, both as students and educational providers. Analyses of these databases provided a descriptive picture of African-American males’ participation at each phase (e.g., high school completion, college enrollment, and doctoral degree completion), in comparison to White males’, in an attempt to understand how this representation affects administrative diversity in higher and postsecondary education. The results suggest that in order to increase the representation of African-American males in academic administrative positions at colleges and universities, additional attention must be placed on each phase of the educational pipeline to increase the pool of eligible candidates.
