Abstract: The purpose of this research was to: (1) identify factors which affect the decisions of higher education social science faculty to affiliate or not to affiliate with professional organizations; (2) identify the efforts of selected professional organizations to recruit, retain, and reclaim minority and female higher education faculty; and (3) make recommendations to professional associations, university administrators, and other interested parties about the professional affiliations of minority and/or female higher education social science faculty. Instruments to address the specific research questions of this study did not exist. Therefore, three separate instruments were devised to gather data from the following three sources: (1) selected professional associations; (2) twenty-two four-year North Carolina institutions; and (3) social science faculty members employed at the institutions in item (2).
