Minority Enrollment at State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges, Fall, 1978.
National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Washington, DC. Office of Communications Services.
A survey was conducted by the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges to determine minority enrollment at state universities and land-grant colleges. There was a four percent decline in overall enrollment at state and land-grant universities from 1977 to 1978. The survey covered 354 campuses and determined that black students, representing the largest minority group, comprised 7.3 percent of total 1978 enrollment. Comparative data for 1976 and 1978 are presented for total enrollment of ethnic groups. The survey contains data by level, sex, and full-time/part-time status. Among the findings are: non-resident aliens jumped 21.9 percent in two years; non-resident aliens headed all minorities in full-time status; and black enrollment at predominantly white campuses continued to rise. Institutions with the largest minority enrollments and enrollment data are included. (SW)
