Abstract

This study explored the level of overall job satisfaction and subjective well-being among women of color counselor educators at predominately White universities. More specifically, this study focused on university factors and personal factors that contribute to their job satisfaction and subjective well-being. The women of color counselor educators in this study also highlighted recommendations for improving recruitment and retention rates in addition to providing insight on coping skills for new women entering the field. Participants consisted of tenured and non-tenured minority women counselor educators (i.e., African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Biracial/Multiracial, Other). Participants completed the 41-item Occupational Satisfaction in Higher Education Scale Survey Revised (OSHE_R) and the 12-item Short Happiness and Affect Research Protocol (SHARP).
