A new Gallup and Strada Education Network study of 32,000 current undergraduates at 43 randomly selected institutions found that the key college experience of having support from faculty mentors does not vary much by gender or race, but does vary significantly by broad field of study. Arts and humanities majors are substantially more likely than business, natural or social science or engineering majors to strongly agree that they had a professor who made them excited about learning, for example. Such findings “are generally consistent with a previous analysis of corresponding items among alumni with different undergraduate majors," according to Gallup.
