Gender diversity among ladder-rank faculty is another area of concern at UC.

Approximately 30 percent of all ladder-rank faculty were women in fall 2009. However, women are differentially distributed across disciplines.

This graph depicts the percentage of women junior faculty (assistant professors) hired at UC compared to national availability pools. It shows that computer science, math and engineering fields hired women faculty at rates comparable to national availability, but that new women faculty were hired at rates below national availability in all other fields.

As noted in Indicator 59, campuses are unlikely to make substantial progress in increasing the proportion of women faculty in the near term since recruitment of new faculty has been slowed significantly due to the budget situation. Additional information will be available in the January 2011 Accountability Sub-Report on Faculty Competitiveness.

National availability was estimated based on the proportion of Ph.D.s awarded from 2003 to 2007.
