The study presented in this article investigated the state of the diversity budget at the nation’s flagship institutions during an economic recession. The sample included higher education administrators who oversaw a diversity budget at their respective institution and who were familiar with the state of budget cuts. Results indicate that 53 percent (17) of diversity units have experienced some type of cut in their operating budget. While many experienced some form of budget cut, when compared with other areas within the institution, the amount of the cut in diversity areas was not as significant as that in other areas.
