Second, there is a lack of available demographic information and third, this creates a dismal narrative regarding faculty diversity at HSIs.Research limitations/implicationsFurther critical research is warranted as a means to uncover data on faculty diversity at HSIs.Originality/valueThis study supports the need for a critical consciousness lens to problematize faculty diversity at HSIs.
