Diversity on Campus

Today, 32% of undergraduate students enrolled at MICUA member institutions are students of color. The fastest growing population at MICUA colleges and universities is Hispanic students. Hispanic undergraduate student enrollment nearly tripled (171% increase) between 2004 and 2014, and African American undergraduate student enrollment grew by almost 30% during the same period. By comparison, total undergraduate student enrollment grew by 11%. More than half of the MICUA State-aided institutions have eliminated the graduation gap between students of color and the general population. Based on the most recent data, 9% of MICUA faculty are minorities.
