Colorado Higher Education: A Report of Ethnic Minority Enrollments, 1980.
Information on minority enrollment in 1980 in public and private colleges and universities in Colorado is presented. Additional data elements for the 1980 academic year are minority enrollment by subject field and student level, and first-time minority enrollment (i.e., first-time freshmen, first-time graduates). The three sections of the report deal with all Colorado higher education institutions, public and private institutions separately. Among the findings are the following: overall, the number of ethnic minority enrollments in Colorado institutions increased from the fall of 1978 to the fall of 1980; within the private sector, the number of ethnic minority enrollments increased, while in the public sector the number decreased; 13 of the 28 public institutions reported an increase in ethnic minority enrollments; 10 of the 13 private institutions reported increases in ethnic minority enrollments; from 1978 to 1980, Colorado higher education enrollments increased overall in both sectors; from 1978 to 1980 (public and private sectors combined) increases in enrollment occurred for the Asian/Pacific Islander and the Hispanic ethnic minority groups; decreases in enrollment occurred for the Black and American Indian/Alaskan Native groups; in the public sector, only the Asian/Pacific Islander group increased in number of enrollments; in the private sector, all ethnic minority groups, with the exception of the American Indian/Alaskan Native group, increased in number of enrollments.
