  1. This is good -- except . . .

    African American Professors teaching full- time at American Universities is less an eight percent.

    The verb should be are.

    Subject: professors
    Verb: are

    Omit "an."

    African-American professors teaching full time at American universities are less than eight percent of the total.

    I've tried to find a better verb than "are," but I can't.
