Undergraduate Diversity: More Minorities, More Women


This brief article in the Chronicle for Higher Ed has some interesting figures and tables.  When I see these kinds of demographic data, I always wonder how the teaching and recruiting will change in disciplines that continue to attract a narrow segment of the population.  How might some of the more traditional engineering disciplines change? Also, with the female population in academe growing, will we begin to see decreases in the tendency to dismiss as less scholarly those disciplines that are traditionally predominantly female?
