Enhancing Compositional Diversity

Efforts to attract and retain underrepresented groups to our student, faculty and staff ranks continue to be a priority.

  1. Part of the Ford Hall 2015 negotiations was agreement on the goal to double the number of full-time underrepresented faculty where “underrepresented faculty” meant Black, Latinx, and “Two or More races” faculty, specifically. The benchmark starting point is October 2015. Thus, this goal will be measured until October 15, 2021.
  2. The figures presented below are not the same as those shown in IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System). The reason they are different is that a) unlike IPEDS that captures all faculty numbers across race (including part-time faculty), we are only reporting full-time faculty, and b), IPEDS follows the federal racial categories that do not easily reflect faculty who change from one employment status to another. For example, the figures below count faculty members who may have been a post-doc operating as a full-time faculty person who then became an assistant professor or a faculty member who was from an international location, but has since changed citizenship status. In essence, these figures attempt to provide nuanced information about who is actually here at Brandeis operating as a full-time faculty member.
  3. This figure for Black faculty includes a faculty member who identifies as Black and Latinx. Thus, this person is double counted for “Black” and “Latinx,” but is not counted twice for the overall total.
  4. This figure for Latinx faculty includes a faculty member who identifies as Black and Latinx. Thus, this person is double counted for “Black” and “Latinx,” but is not counted twice for the overall total.
