Summary

Compared to the United States labor force as a whole, blacks are overrepresented in social service careers and underrepresented in technical and executive careers. This study examined the possibility that the psychosocial environment provided by black colleges may help to cause or perpetuate the distribution of blacks among careers. The faculties of predominantly black colleges and of a representative sample of United States postsecondary institutions were classified in terms of six types: realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising, and conventional. Compared to the representative sample of United States colleges, black colleges were found to be relatively more concentrated in social fields and relatively less concentrated in realistic and enterprising fields. Thus the distribution of faculty members among disciplines resembles the distribution of blacks among careers. The faculties of black institutions are also less concentrated in artistic or liberal arts fields. (Author/APM)
