Chart of the Month: Field of Study Diversity

The September Chart of the Month features data from the APSA Membership Dashboard on field of study diversity. APSA is committed to advancing diversity and inclusion throughout the profession. Yet, more work needs to be done in the area of recruitment, retention and inclusivity –at all levels of the profession and across the major fields of study—in order to achieve a more diverse, equitable and inclusive profession. The interactive APSA data dashboards, shown here, can be used to view snapshots and trends (by race, ethnicity and gender) across the membership, and within and across fields of study. Faculty and departments can use this data to support innovative diversity recruitment, hiring, and retention; critical curriculum and departmental assessment; and informed student advising that highlights the rich variety of fields and methodological approaches available throughout the discipline.
