Number of American Indian profs doubles — from one to two


Last year, the University had 2,744 faculty members who were white. One-hundred-twenty were black, and 93 were Hispanic. Six hundred and six were Asian, and only one was Native American. That number has since doubled, due to the hiring of Ned Blackhawk, a history professor from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, who joined Yale’s History and American Studies departments this semester.
