NSHE Diversity Report, 2005-06
Nevada System of Higher Education
This report is prepared annually by the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) to provide an overview of: (1) the enrollment of members of racial/ethnic groups as students at NSHE institutions; (2) graduation rates for each institution broken down by each racial/ethnic group; and (3) the number of women and members of racial/ethnic groups employed by each institution within the NSHE. In summary, the number and percentage distribution of students who are members of minority groups increased substantially since 1996. Nearly every institution exceeded 25 percent overall growth in the distribution of minority groups with UNLV approaching growth in minority groups of nearly 50 percent. Over the past year, enrollment of students in NSHE institutions grew in every ethnic/racial group. The only ethnic/racial group that does not exceed the minority population distributions in the state of Nevada is Hispanics. However, from 1996 to 2005, enrollment of Hispanic students at NSHE institutions increased by 113.6 percent. [This report was prepared by the Nevada System of Higher Education, Las Vegas.]
