Student Profile by Ethnicity, Primary Language and Country of Origin.
Niles, Wallace M.
In recognition of the importance of diversity, and in response to numerous requests from the college community, New York City Technical College (NYCTC) developed a profile of fall semester 1989 students enrolled in each curriculum, each academic division, and the entire college, based on students' ethnicity, primary language, and country of origin. Of a total of 11,066 students enrolled in fall 1989, data on ethnicity were available for 64.5% of the students, on primary language spoken for 78.5%, and on country of origin for 27.6% of the students. Following a brief introduction and summary of findings, this report is divided into three sections consisting entirely of data tables and bar graphs. The first section contains data on total fall 1989 enrollment by ethnicity and gender. The second section contains tables presenting the numbers and percentages of males and females within each ethnic group in each of the following enrollment/program categories: Business and Communications Technology, Engineering Technology, Health and Natural Sciences, and Liberal Arts and Sciences, non-degree, unclassified, and bachelor's programs. The final section provides data on the primary language and country of origin for students in each of the enrollment/program categories. Findings include the following: (1) whites comprised 12.1% of the enrollees; (2) nearly 100 countries are represented among the student body; (3) after English, the most frequently cited primary languages were Spanish, French, and Chinese; and (4) outside of the United States, Haiti was the most frequently reported country of origin.
