FAQs

Below is information about the representation of women and members of racially and ethnically underrepresented groups in our department. This information is far from complete. We intend the following as a first step in systematically collecting and making available such statistics.

It would be useful to be able to compare the statistics we provide below with the statistics for other departments and for the profession as a whole. Unfortunately, much of this information is not available. (For discussion of some information that is available, see the links below, as well as our page “Implicit Bias”.) We hope that by making our statistics available other departments will be encouraged to do so as well.

  FAQs

  1. Why don’t you include data for other minorities, such as people with disabilities?

    1A: We don’t have any data on this. We wish we did. We also wish there was a good way to collect such data.
