MUNCIE — An evaluation team from an accrediting organization found that most leadership positions at Ball State University are held by white males even though it has a female president.

The Star Press reports the 12-member team from the Higher Learning Commission found the university to be in full compliance with federal regulations, but still urged the school to step up diversity efforts.

The report pointed out that the president's cabinet is predominantly white and mostly male and the academic deans are males, most of them white.

Ball State Associate Provost Marilyn Buck said the report overall was good, saying getting women into leadership positions is something most universities work on. The Star Press said reports it obtained showing other state schools have been cited for the need to improve diversity.
