Education & Education Reform

The majority of deans, tenured professors and college presidents are men. According to the American Council on Education, women comprise about 45% of senior academic administrators, including 7% women of color. Of CAOs, 38% are women, but only 3% are women of color. Academic leaders must establish clear objectives for advancing diversity among senior faculty and administrators. They also need to ensure that they create on-campus environments that are both inviting and supportive of diverse staff and students.
