Report on the APA 2013 Graduate Guide: Faculty

Philosophy News's analysis and report on the data contained in The American Philosophical Association's (APA) 2013 Guide to Graduate Programs in Philosophy. We report on findings such as ratio of tenure track positions to non-tenure track, the ratio of women faculty to men, and which school has the most total faculty in philosophy.

APA LogoThe American Philosophical Association (APA) puts out an annual Guide to Graduate Programs in Philosophy.  The following statistics come completely from aggregating and compiling the data found in the 2013 guide.

Note: All data are self-reported by the departments in question and cannot be guaranteed accurate.  Furthermore, this is not a random or necessarily representative sample of philosophy programs as it contains information from only those schools that completed the 2013 Graduate Guide survey.

Summary of Findings:

  • 73% of faculty are tenured; 15% are TT (tenure track); 11% are non-TT
  • The University of Toronto has the most total faculty at 62.
  • No school has more women faculty than men.
  • The top school by ratio of the number of women that are faculty compared with the total number of faculty is San Francisco State University at 50%.
  • The average is 75% men and 25% women faculty members.
  • The average ratio of tenured men to all tenured faculty is 77%.
  • On average, 63% of TT faculty are men.
  • The percentage of men in Non-TT positions to all Non-TT positions is 72%.

Faculty (All):

The following table shows each school listed in the 2013 guide, along with its faculty totals.  From this, we can see that

  • Of the 1836 faculty listed, 73% (1346) are tenured, 15% (282) are TT, and 11% (208) are non-TT.
  • The University of Toronto has the most total faculty at 62, followed by Notre Dame at 38, and CUNY at 38.

Faculty (By Gender):

Let’s add another layer of complexity by analyzing this data by gender.  Here is the first list again, with each school broken out by gender.  Note: “Other Gender”" was listed as an acceptable choice in the APA survey.  However, no schools reported faculty with a gender of “Other”, so I am leaving it out of the tables for the sake of space.

These are the absolute counts.  Let’s look at these by percentages as before.  First, what is the ratio of the number of men to the number of faculty in the department?  The list below contains an ordered list.  Some initial observations:

  • The top three schools by ratio of the number of men that are faculty compared with the total number of faculty are (1) University of Dallas at 100%, (1) University of Mississippi at 100%, and (3) Southern Illinois University, Carbondale at 92%.
  • No school has more women faculty than men. 
  • The top three schools by ratio of the number of women that are faculty compared with the total number of faculty are (1) San Francisco State University at 50%, (2) University of Georgia at 44%, and (3) University of Washington-Seattle Campus and Eastern Michigan University at 43%.
  • The average is 75% men and 25% women faculty members.
