Minorities in Higher Education. Eighth Annual Status Report.
Carter, Deborah J.; Wilson, Reginald
The latest available data as of the end of 1989 is presented on the progress of African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, and American Indians in postsecondary education. Statistics have been compiled on high school completion, college participation, and college completion obtained from the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of the Census data on high school completions and college participation, and from the U.S. Department of Education's Center for Education Statistics on earned degrees. The report also contains earned degree data for historically Black colleges and universities. The report focuses on high school completion and college participation patterns of low-income and middle-income African American and Hispanic youth; Asian Americans and American Indians could not be included because annual data on these groups is lacking. A brief summary of campus efforts to increase minority participation and degreee attainment is included. Contains 19 table of statistics and 17 references. (GLR)
