Black and Hispanic faculty members are underrepresented at bachelor’s-, master’s- and doctorate-level institutions, according to a new study published in the Hispanic Journal of Law and Policy. At bachelor’s institutions, 5.2% of tenured faculty members are black and 6.6% are Hispanic or Latino. At the doctoral level, those shares shrink to 4% and 4.6%, respectively.  White faculty members make up 78.9% of those with tenure at bachelor’s institutions and 74.2% at doctoral institutions. However, the report notes, an overall decrease in the share of white faculty members hasn’t been “accounted for by increases in other races and ethnicities.”
