NEBHE: DEI of Post-secondary Faculty and Scholars in Maine
"While New England's undergraduate population is becoming increasingly diversified, there is still a demographic "mismatch" between the percentage of students of color relative to faculty of color in Maine. While Black undergraduates represented 4.2% of Maine's student population in 2018, only 1.6% of the state's faculty were Black. Likewise, Hispanics students made up 3.6% of the student population, but only 1.9% of the state's faculty were Hispanic. By contrast, white students made up 88.6% of Maine's undergraduate population, but nearly 94% of faculty were white". Review NEBHE's report on post-secondary faculty in Maine and why it matters here.
