The age distribution of UC faculty has become more heavily weighted toward older faculty as the baby boom cohort (those born 1946 to 1964) has grown older.

In 2008, 54 percent of UC Senate faculty members were 50 or older compared to about 42 percent in 1994.

The need to recruit large numbers of new faculty to replace retiring faculty, and to do so in the context of high enrollment demands and significant budget reductions, is one of the major challenges facing UC.
