Minority Enrollment in Independent Colleges and Universities, 1986-1988.
National Inst. of Independent Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
Statistics and trends on minority enrollment in independent colleges are summarized. During 1986-1988, enrollment of minority students increased by 5.3%, slightly faster than the rate of increase for minority students at public institutions. Minority student enrollment in independent colleges accounted for 18.4% of the full time equivalent enrollment, slightly less than in public institutions. Reversing a previous trend, there was an increase in the enrollment of Black students in independent colleges but enrollment of Hispanic students declined (due primarily to enrollment declines in Puerto Rico). Separate data for four-year and two-year institutions indicate that independent two-year institutions enroll a larger proportion of minority students than any other type of college (25.4%) despite an overall decrease in enrollment. Tables provide detailed statistics by ethnic group and institution type. (DB)
