Note: The COFHE Non-Ivy Universities include Duke, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, MIT, Northwestern, Rice, Stanford, University of Chicago, University of Rochester, and Washington University.

*The percentage of underrepresented minority faculty members in a school of arts and science may be affected by, among other factors, the existence of an urban studies or sociology program, both of which tend to have a greater percentage of minority faculty than many of the other fields in arts and sciences. The University of Rochester and Washington University are the only schools in this peer group that have neither program.
