Numbers Don't Lie: Problematizing Faculty Diversity at HSIs
Banda, Rosa Maria; Flowers, Alonzo M.; Robinson, Petra
Journal for Multicultural Education, v11 n4 p250-263 2017
Purpose: Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), like other universities, are faced with challenges related to faculty diversity. The literature related to faculty at HSIs is scant and so this paper aims to address this gap by problematizing faculty diversity at these institutions. Design/methodology/approach: By means of a document analysis, the authors have scoured the data on faculty demographics at these institutions and the findings of the study are threefold. Findings: First, a lack of accessible and transparent data exists. Second, there is a lack of available demographic information and third, this creates a dismal narrative regarding faculty diversity at HSIs. Research limitations/implications: Further critical research is warranted as a means to uncover data on faculty diversity at HSIs. Originality/value: This study supports the need for a critical consciousness lens to problematize faculty diversity at HSIs.
