Comparative Ethnic Enrollment in American Colleges and Universities. Research Report No. 87-23.
Losak, John; Morris, Cathy
Drawing from data on ethnic enrollments in colleges and universities in the United States published in the "Chronicle of Higher Education," this report provides lists of the colleges and universities with total fall 1984 enrollment of 20,000 or more that had the highest and lowest numbers of Black and Hispanic students. Specifically, the lists rank the 20 institutions with the largest number of Black students, the 10 institutions with the lowest Black enrollment, the 20 colleges with the largest Hispanic enrollment, and the 10 institutions with the lowest Hispanic enrollment. For each college or community college district, the report provides information on location, total fall enrollment, percent of the total enrollment that were Black or Hispanic, and number of Black or Hispanic students. The report highlights the fact that Miami-Dade Community College not only enrolled more Hispanic students than any other institution of higher learning in the United States (N=18,724), but also had virtually double the number of students (N=9,511) of San Antonio Community College in Texas, the second-ranked institution. The schools with the largest Black enrollment were the Cuyahoga Community College District in Ohio, where Black students numbered 6,468 or 25.9% of the total enrollment, Wayne State University in Michigan, which enrolled 6,366 Black students, comprising 21.9% of the total enrollment, Houston Community College in Texas, which enrolled 5,526 Black students or 22.0% of the total enrollment, and Miami-Dade, which enrolled 5,124 Black students, making up 13.6% of the total enrollment. The schools with the smallest number of Black students were Brigham Young University (N=30 or 0.1%), the University of Utah (N=123 or 0.5%), and Orange Coast Community College in California (N=259 or 1.2%). The four colleges with less than 100 Hispanic students were Memphis State University in Tennessee (N=43 or 0.2%), the University of Kentucky Community College System (N=71 or 0.3%), the University of Tennessee (N=78 or 0.3%), and the University of Akron (N=80 or 0.3%).
