Abstract

Utilizing data describing the number of doctorates awarded to students of color by U.S. colleges and schools of education (CSEs) in 1984-85, 1989-90, 1990-91, and 1991-92 (N = approximately 185 institutions each year), this investigation identifies those universities that have been most successful in preparing educational leaders and researchers of color. The following results are reported: (a) relatively small subsets of 23 to 26 universities produced about one-half of all doctoral recipients of color during each year and across the three years from 1989 to 1992; and (b) approximately one-third of these students received their doctorates from one of the 31 most academically productive CSEs. These findings are shown to support the need for proactive policies relative to recruiting and retaining doctoral students of color in education.
