In this study, we conducted survey research to examine perceptions of diversity and inclusion among majority and non-majority faculty at a Predominately White University (PWI) and a Historically Black University (HBCU), as these public institutions have distinct historical foundations regarding orientation to cultural diversity and inclusion. The study is rooted in the current national efforts to establish Inclusive Excellence (Williams et al., 2005) on university campuses. Unique in this study was an effort to examine perceptions of inclusion and diversity based on identity relative to race, gender, and sexuality given patterns historical marginalization in the context of the majority culture. T-tests and Analysis of Variance (ANOVAs) were used to determine if there are differences in faculty experiences. Results indicated significant differences between the groups and universities in perceptions and experiences of diversity and inclusion.
