dc.description.abstractThe author’s survey of faculty perceptions supports the hypothesis that the faculty of Kalamazoo College believes that the College is lacking diversity. The faculty also agreed that diversity is more related to race and ethnicity than gender, disability, socioeconomic status, age, religion, sexual orientation, political views, and intellectual perspectives. The data firmly supports both hypotheses hence confirming that the faculty of Kalamazoo College believes that the College needs a more diverse environment and measures need to be taken to create one here at the College. Regarding retention of faculty of color and white faculty, while the faculty believe that more efforts are being made to recruit faculty of color than white faculty, faculty report that less effort is made to retain those faculty of color who were recruited. The data suggest that more effort is made in retaining white faculty than faculty of color. Also, many of the faculty report that there are not an adequate number of faculty who do not reflect their own race and ethnicity. This could be attributed to the vast majority of white faculty employed at the College and the small minority of faculty of color who are employed at the College. The upside to this statistic is that the white faculty want to work with more faculty of color. The majority of the faculty reported that there are an adequate number of faculty members that reflect their own race and ethnicity but that is very obvious given the demographics of the faculty.en_US
