Black Faculty at Stanford: No Progress in 20 Years

stanfordStanford University recently released a study on the diversity of its faculty and the progress that has been achieved over the past 20 years.

The study stated that in 2013, there were 2,043 members of the Stanford faculty. Blacks or African Americans were 2.6 percent of the total faculty. The number of Black faculty at Stanford has increased by 25 percent from 1993 to 2003 and another 18 percent from 2003 to 2013. However, because of an overall increase in the number of faculty members since 2003, the Black percentage of the total faculty has remained the same at 2.6 percent.

During the same period, the number of Asian faculty has tripled. In 1993, Asians were 7 percent of the total faculty. In 2013, the figure was 16.1 percent.
