December, 2018

In fall 2018, students of color and American Indian students accounted for 27 percent of all undergraduate enrollment, an increase of 129 percent compared to fall 2008, when they accounted for only 15 percent of total enrollment. For nine of our member institutions, they accounted for 20 percent or more of undergraduate enrollment. (For context, last spring students of color and American Indian students graduating from Minnesota high schools accounted for 23 percent of graduates.)
