Ethnic Distribution of L.A.C.C. Students.
Gold, Ben K.
This report presents information relating to ethnic distributions of students at Los Angeles City College (LACC). Data about ethnic background, units completed at all colleges, part-time or full-time status, day or evening status, sex, and college major was requested on an optional card provided at the time of registration. In spring 1975, 10,854 students, 50.5 percent of the total census week enrollment, completed the card. Tables indicate ethnic distributions by the various categories of data elicited on the card, and comparative ethnic distributions of LACC students for the past ten years. Approximately one-third of all current LACC students are Black, one-third are Caucasian, and one-third are other minorities. Over the past ten years the total ethnic minority enrollment has risen from about 50 percent to about 65 percent. Part-time students show a smaller percentage of Blacks (26 percent) than full-time students (38 percent). The highest percentages of minorities major in Public Affairs, Commerce, Engineering, Education, Computer Science, and Home Economics. (Author/DC)
