The reports presented on this website provide measures on faculty diversity. For external uses, these reports leverage standard and replicable definitions from federal government sources (e.g. IPEDS) to allow for valid comparisons among institutions of higher education, and across geographic boundaries utilizing county, state, and US census data. These diversity views are recommended for external use.
This view uses IPEDS definitions and data to compare 2005 counts of full-time, instructional faculty with similar counts from the most recent data. Faculty of color is defined by self-reported race/ethnicity classification as African American, Native American, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander (combined), and Two or More Races. The denominator in this ratio includes White but excludes International and unknown.
