Teaching in the line of fire: faculty of color in the academy (2009)

“Historically, faculty of color have been woefully underrepresented in higher education. Since the 1980s, though, numbers for these academics have begun to increase. According to a 2005 report from the American Council on Education (ACE), faculty of color have experienced steady growth during the past two decades, more than doubling their numbers to over 82,000 and increasing their share of faculty positions from approximately 9 percent to 14.4 percent.”
