IUP in Top Dozen for Diversity

IUP has been selected by Diverse Issues in Higher Education as one of the top twelve doctoral universities with the largest share of female tenured professors. IUP is the only Pennsylvania institution in the top twelve ranking, which appeared in the magazine’s March 5 issue.

IUP was also selected as one of the “Top 100” institutions producing the most minority recipients of graduate and professional degrees in the nation in 2008. IUP was ranked forty-sixth in the nation, recognized for its 166.7 percent increase in master’s degrees in Psychology from 2007 to 2008. In 2008, IUP had a total of eight minority master’s degree recipients in Psychology, 13.6 percent of the program’s total graduates.

A total of 40.5 percent of IUP’s tenured faculty is female. Only six institutions in the nation were recognized with higher percentages of female tenured faculty.

“It is an honor to be recognized for IUP’s success in the area of diversity by a publication that champions diversity in higher education and which chronicles models of success,” Tony Atwater, president of IUP, said.
