A recent report by the College and University Professional Association found that the student affairs field is demographically more diverse than other college professions and relatively lacking in pay-equity issues. Relying on data it collected on student affairs professionals, findings showed that nearly 71 percent of positions are held by women. In contrast, about 58 percent of positions across higher education more broadly are occupied by women. However, most racial demographics are underrepresented in student affairs. While about 17 percent of college students are Hispanic, only about 8 percent of student affairs officials are. And Asian men and women comprise about 6 percent of students, but only about 3 percent of student affairs professionals.
