Abstract or Summary
  • This study aimed to investigate if diversity exists among faculty members in (20) twenty universities in sociology, political science, and chemistry departments situated in a variety of cities on the American West Coast. By conducting a content analysis composed of official university websites and individual Curriculum Vitae, each listed faculty member was coded for age, biological sex, and race. It was determined that even though there has been a large push in American universities to increase faculty diversity in all academic departments, the majority of these departments are comprised of white males over 45 years of age. Universities with smaller student populations have higher levels of faculty diversity than those in urban environments. The results suggest the need for universities to re-evaluate their hiring and retention practices in order to mirror their goals, creating a community of faculty diversity.
