Summary of Data

This data has been compiled by the FSU Office of Institutional Research to highlight the diversity needs of the EOAS department. See Figures at the bottom of this page for a visual representation of the data.

The demographics of the EOAS department are predominantly White and Male. From the earliest collection of historical data, the Faculty has increased 9% in %Non-white but has only increased 1% in %Female since 1999. From 2002, all student populations have increased in %Female as well as increased in %Non-white. Staff in EOAS have seen a decrease in %Female since 1999, as well as a decrease in %Non-white.

Within the student population, the greatest %Non-white individuals was observed in the Bachelors population. As well, the Bachelors population had the greatest %Females. Bachelors and Masters students have observed a recent increase in gender diversity within the programs, while Doctoral student populations have only changed 3%, 39-42 %Female since 2002. While there is little difference in the most recent %Female between Doctoral student populations and Post-Doc populations, there is a very large gap in the %Female Faculty and %Female Post-Docs, from 48% female in Post-Docs to 17% female in Faculty.

There was a decrease in %Non-white and %Female within the Staff from 2009-2015. Dropping from 60% to under 40% in % Female, and 25% non-white to 12% non-white at the same time. This is the only department group with both decreases in %Non-white and %Female since 1999.

There has been steady increases in the %Non-white populations of Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral populations. Post-Doc %Non-white populations have fluctuated and Faculty populations have increased from 14% to 22% since 1999, remaining at 22% from 2009 to present. %Non-white, however, remains lower in the graduate student population (11% and 9%, Masters and Doctoral) than in the faculty population, with Bachelor students observing the greatest %Non-White population in the most recent years, at 26%. This lower % in the graduate student populations may be partly due to the removal of non-residents, as their race was entered as non-resident, that did not occur within faculty and staff populations.

It is obvious that emphasis needs to be placed on the Faculty population as there has been little change in gender or racial diversity since 1999.

*Gender was limited to Male and Female responses for historical and current data, with no space for no response or other.
*Department demographics does not include the races of international students and post-docs who are non-residents as this was provided as a separate race demographic without further subsections. Therefore, these were excluded from the white and non-white groups but not from the total.
