2021 Report on Diversity at CCCU Institutions
This report provides historical and contemporary data on student and faculty racial and gender diversity in general, and student and faculty racial and gender diversity in STEM, at CCCU member institutions.
Institutional STEM and Diversity Profiles
Senior administrators at CCCU institutions who want to find out where their institution fits into the broader CCCU landscape (as described in the two reports above) can, for a small fee, obtain an individualised report about their institution.
An example report will be published here in early October.
To receive an update when the example report is published here, and/or to register your interest in potentially receiving a report for your institution, please send an email to [email protected] containing your name, your institution’s name, and your position in your institution.
2021 Report on Supporting Diversity in STEM
This report provides a brief overview of some of the literature that describes the unique challenges that underrepresented faculty in STEM face, and it summarizes some recommendations for creating departmental and campus climates that are more amenable to the flourishing and retention of diverse faculty. Some of the difficulties presented by the climates in many STEM departments impact nearly all underrepresented faculty, some are specific to women, some are specific to people of color, and women of color can find themselves in a “double-bind” situation in which they face hardships related to both race and gender. Addressing the disparities in representation within STEM disciplines will be a long and complex process involving both individual and institutional learning. This process can only be initiated once the reality of the difficulties facing underrepresented faculty are recognized.
