For the amount of money raked in from athletic programs, colleges and universities owe its players some kind of stipend, to say the least.



ROCHELLE RILEY: Will Missouri players' action lead to push to be paid?


... But perhaps that could change, should change, after the unprecedented and heroic action taken by black University of Missouri football players. They stood with students who believed their concerns about racial incidents on campus were ignored by the university’s leadership.

The players vowed to boycott football without substantial change. How about a president and chancellor resigning? Is that change enough for you?

But the greater issue, the greater question, is what happens next? Will this instance empower athletes at other universities to stand together for change, to demand more? Could the recognition that they have power be enough to push student athletes to tackle that granddaddy of all unfair campus practices: the business of college athletics? ...

Missouri would likely be alone with 10 percent black faculty

Missouri would likely stand alone with 10 percent black faculty; Other flagships much lower



BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- If the University of Missouri succeeds in meeting a student demand for a faculty that's 10 percent black in two years, it will likely be alone among its peers.

No state's "flagship" public university campus had a black faculty population approaching that level, and only a handful topped even the 5 percent mark, an Associated Press analysis of 2013 federal data found ...

Why are black college professors so rare?

Mizzou students want to increase black faculty to 10 percent, almost unheard of in most US colleges, where black professors typically make up less than 5 percent of the faculty



... The studies suggest that black faculty may be drawn to small schools' focus on humanities and social sciences, which typically attract more black students than sciences and engineering, but also the emphasis on teaching, rather than a publish-or-perish attitude that leaves many professors elsewhere more concerned about their research than their students.

Not only does that improve students' in-class learning, but it often leads to more supportive student-teacher relationships ...

Missouri: Can hiring more black professors shift institutional racism?


A study released by Stanford University suggests bias is too embedded. But there may be hope



... Hiring more black faculty would benefit students on multiple levels, argues Deidree Golbourne, an African-American studies major at the University of Buffalo.

"Studies show that students normally do better if they're taught by people that can relate to them, not only economically or socially, but racially," she told the Chronicle of Higher Education, "because naturally we face similar struggles" ...

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
