Assistant Professor

What do you like about working at Hampton University?

"The students come from diverse racial, ethnic, geographic, and socio-economic backgrounds. In all 13 courses that I have taught between Fall 2008 to the current semester, I have found them hard-working, bright, respectful, and lively--in short, a joy for any instructor who likes teaching. Despite an atmosphere of extreme hierarchy and stress-inducing grantsmanship, the faculty are collegial, resilient, and devoted to their students."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"To succeed at Hampton, you must--freely expressing yourself in faculty meetings and anywhere else, as the current president has encouraged colleagues to inform on those who politely disagree about ANYTHING contrary to the HU agenda--suppress any ideas that don't conform to the President's agenda--adjust to a school that runs by presidential fiat rather than group concensus--commit to writing grants if you want ANYTHING--a working computer, travel money for conferences, multi-media teaching technology, consistently clean bathrooms, mold-free offices, accessible bathrooms on ALL floors for BOTH sexes--voluminous paper work and byzantine, bureaucratic process"

What don't you like about working at Hampton University?

"As with most private black colleges/universities, HU, my alma mater, tends to be run by college presidents who are more likely to rule these campuses as emperors rather than administer/facilitate campuses as visionary, fair-minded, respectful leaders. I have taught at three hbcus, and Hampton University's administrative employees, from its president to the provost to the deans, treat most faculty and staff members as underlings, advancing them not on the basis of their competence but on their proven and unwavering compliance with presidential policies--no matter how capricious or impractical. Also, the faculty are sorely overworked, underpaid, and bullied by a president whose fiscal and successful building projects seem to have embolden him to treat employees disdainfully, dismissively, and sometimes even cruelly."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"If you like micro-managing, a powerfully centralized administration, and a hyper-capitalist, grants-driven environment, then, this is the place for you!"
