         Diversiy, equity and inclusion should be sidejly promoted across discaplines, colleges,
and  a  university's intellectual communiy to positivey impact educational practices and
outcomes. It is important that our nation's college and universities centrally value gender and
ethnoracial diversiy that fits within the framework of the law in the admissions processes and
the recruitment and employment of faculty, two areas uniquely separate and distinct in their
legal analyses. Notably, propositions, legislation andjudicial decisions have challenged podes
crafted to increase diversiy in education in some states, particulary, in the context of admissions
in higher education, while the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed race to be considered as a
'lus  factor. Considering the legal context surrounding higher education admissions, it is
important for leaders and administrators in higher education to understand whether universities
and  colleges have advanced greater diversiy among aculty given this legal environment. Our
discussion ocuses on what higher education leaders are acng nith respect to aculy diversity
given the legal context surrounding affirmative action and admissions processes. We note
differences in gender and ethnoracial diversify by institution fype (Bachelor's, Master's and
Doctoral). We  also find that in recentyears, gains in faculty diversiy in U.S. college and
university intellectual communities were largey minimal.
