The University of Hawaii has made progress diversifying its faculty over the past several decades, but the faculty at its flagship campus are still disproportionately white compared with the majority Asian-Pacific Islander student body.
At Manoa, the university’s research campus, about 60% of tenured faculty are white compared with less than 24% of the student body, according to data from fall 2018. Just about half of UH Manoa faculty are white across both tenure and non-tenure track positions.
