LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Whereas research related to the experience of faculty of color is increasing, little attention has been focused on Chinese faculty’s career experience in the United States. This study examines career experiences of sixteen Chinese faculty members across different disciplines, ranks and genders at a studied research extensive university in Texas, United States. The study uses a qualitative research design with in-depth interviews, observations and document reviews as the major tools for data collection and adopted constant comparative methods for data analysis. Drawing the research data directly from Chinese faculty members, the study identifies factors which influence Chinese faculty decisions to apply for, accept, and remain in faculty positions, challenges as well as support when seeking promotion, tenure and recognition.
