  • Ma: 1980-2000 minority student grew from 16-28 percent (nearly double), but faculty recruitment didn’t keep pace. Hispanics account for only 3.5 percent of faculty (total).In 2000, 79% of PhD recipients in science, engineering, and math are white (only 4% are Hispanic).Moreno et al: 1993-2003 minority faculty increased from 6% to 8% (slow growth). Study of 28 campuses. Hispanic/Latino faculty are now 5% nationally (account for over half of minority faculty). Part of the increase in minority faculty was because department sizes increased. Hispanics were 6.3% of new hires. But turnover was high, and there’s a revolving door in academia.Ivie et al: Based on a 2008 survey of all physics departments around country. Hispanics are 4.1% and whites 82.2%.Hispanics are 4.0% of total faculty in the US (not distinguishing TT and non-TT). Of 763 faculty, they found that 528 (69.9%) had neither Hispanic nor black faculty. Only 21% of departments had Hispanic faculty.IUB: At IUB, Hispanic TT faculty were 2.8% (7% total for all minorities).
  • Nuñez-Smith et al: Sample of 128 medicals and 88,432 unique faculty members. Promotion rates from assistant to full professor was 30.2% for whites, 23.5% for Hispanics. Promotion rates from associate to full was 31.5% for whites, 25.0% for Hispanics. Controlled for various factors (institutional, proportion of faculty, number of women, etc.)NCES: Hispanics are 3.5% of faculty (total). 3.9% of Instructors and 3.8% of Lecturers. Only 2.3% of assistant professors and 1.6% of full professors.
  • NCES: Hispanics are 3.5% of faculty (total). 3.9% of Instructors and 3.8% of Lecturers. Only 2.3% of assistant professors and 1.6% of full professors.
  • Ivie et al: Only 21% of departments had Hispanic faculty. Of 763 departments surveyed, 69.9% had no Hispanic or black faculty.IU: Looking across selected departments, 14.6% (total minority) in education, zero in psychology, 1.7% in business, 8.7% in history.Percent of minority PhD recipients across US in fields ranged from 19.4% (education) to 8.9% (history).
  • Lewis-Stevenson: Faculty in family medicine departments are more likely to be female than in other departments (41/25) and unrepresented minorities (9/4). Also found women/minorities less likely to be senior faculty.IU: Looking across selected departments, 14.6% (total minority) in education, zero in psychology, 1.7% in business, 8.7% in history.Percent of minority PhD recipients across US in fields ranged from 19.4% (education) to 8.9% (history).
