Where Are They? A Multilens Examination of the Distribution of Full-Time Faculty by Institutional Type, Race/Ethnicity, Gender, and Citizenship

This study provides a multilens examination of the diversity of full-time faculty in the United States across 11 institutional types derived from Carnegie classifications, by the intersection of race/ethnicity, citizenship, and gender and to make comparisons across time. Whereas few other studies have assessed faculty diversity for the for-profit sector (Schuster and Finkelstein, 2006), this study places emphasis on this rapidly growing type, along with the specific inclusion of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and tribal colleges. In addition, the separation of international faculty from traditional race and ethnic categories also provides an insight into that category and its impact on faculty diversity. The multilens perspective was made possible using three different analyses. Through the first lens, the distribution of full-time faculty diversity is examined "within each institutional type" (by gender, race/ethnicity, and citizenship). Through the second lens, there is an examination of the institutional distribution of faculty "within each racial-ethnic/gender grouping." Finally, the third lens looks at "changes over time" and rates of change in faculty diversity by each of these categories from 1993 to 2009. (Contains 7 tables, 3 figures and 2 notes.)
