Business schools are increasingly emphasizing diversity in their courses as well as in their student populations. Additionally, most schools pay lip‐service to increasing diversity in their faculty compositions. But how well are business schools meeting the goal of a diverse faculty? The purpose of this research was to examine this issue through the analyses of the results of a survey sent to 71 schools of business across the USA. The survey examined ethnic backgrounds, asking for the number of Caucasians, Blacks, Hispanics, Asian‐Pacific peoples, and American‐Indians on faculties. Gender and the position in the school, i.e. dean, associate dean, director, professional, were also collected. Diversity varied between the positions held by faculty but not by the number of years in administrative positions. Significant differences between public and private schools were not evident based on these variables.
