Strategic Plan to Ensure Racial and Ethnic Diversity in Connecticut Public Higher Education, 2005. Annual Report
Connecticut Department of Higher Education (NJ1)
Representative parity of minority groups at public colleges and universities is a longstanding goal of the Board of Governors for Higher Education, as first outlined in its 1983 Strategic Plan to Ensure Racial and Ethnic Diversity in Connecticut Public Higher Education. The minority groups defined by the plan are: Hispanic/Latino, African American, Asian American and Native American--listed in order of their current proportional presence in the state's population. Subsequently, the Board's Strategic Plan was enacted by the state legislature, which since 1986 provides the Board with an annual allocation to promote achievement of the plan's diversity goals. Although the plan mandates no numeric goals, it holds campuses to the ideal that the racial and ethnic make-up of their students, graduates and staff should reflect the diversity of the state's citizenry. Since enactment of the Strategic Plan, Connecticut's public colleges and universities have become more racially and ethnically diverse and 2004 continues a trend of year-to-year incremental progress. The overall numbers and proportions of minority group members among enrolled students and graduates at the undergraduate level reached record levels. This report summarizes the activities and progress achieved in 2004 to ensure that Connecticut's public colleges and universities are representative of the state's racial and ethnic diversity. Appended are: (1) Undergraduate Enrollment of Hispanic/Latino Students; (2) Undergraduate Enrollment of African American Students; (3) Undergraduate Enrollment of Asian American Students; (4) Undergraduate Enrollment of Native American Students; (5) Undergraduate Degree Recipients: Hispanic/Latino Students; (6) Undergraduate Degree Recipients: African American Students; (7) Undergraduate Degree Recipients: Asian American Students; and (8) Undergraduate Degree Recipients: Native American Students. (Contains 4 charts, 2 graphs and 18 tables.) [For the previous report, "Strategic Plan To Ensure Racial and Ethnic Diversity in Connecticut Public Higher Education.
