Ethnic Minorities at the University of New Mexico. A Presidential Progress Report
New Mexico Univ., Albuquerque.
Based on statistics for the fall of 1974, minority students at the university form a percentage of the total student body that is three times the national average at undergraduate and preprofessional levels of education, and twice that at the graduate level. The university has the highest minority enrollment percentage among major state universities. During 1975-76, UNM awarded $10,000,000 in student financial aid to minorities, allocated $4,600,000 for minority-emphasis recruitment-retention programs, and spent over $140,000 on three ethnic student centers. However, the minority enrollment does not match the percentage of minorities in the state's population. (MSE)
