Overview

The first historically black college in the U.S. was established in 1837. HBCUs have educated many leaders in American society, and have become an essential part of the American higher education community. Recently HBCUs have been confronted with challenges that threaten their survival, and require responses dependent on organizational capacity for innovation and change. The objective of this study was to explore organizational support for innovation among HBCU faculty, and to exam effects of related variables. A sample of 3,070 faculty from 73 HBCUs provided data for the study. Findings of this study suggested that individual attitudinal variables including dispositional resistance toward change, empowerment, organizational trust, and interpersonal conflict were significant predictors of faculty perceived support for innovation. Dispositional resistance toward change and interpersonal conflict were negatively related to support for innovation, while empowerment and organizational trust were positively related to support for innovation. Among the attitudinal and demographic variables included in this study, organizational trust and experience participating in innovation process were significant predictors of support for innovation. The results of the study suggest that structural reforms and shared-governance may increase organizational trust and support for innovation.
