Top 100--Graduate Degree Producers
Borden, Victor M. H.
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v26 n12 p16-25 Jul 2009
The Top 100 degree tables published in this edition of Diverse, and the many more detailed tables included on the Diverse Web site, delineate the institutions that have conferred the most master's, doctoral and first professional degrees to students of color in academic year 2007-2008. Each table shows the number of degrees for a specific minority group as well as for total minorities, by gender and total. Also included is the prior year total along with two percentages: the percentage of degrees in that degree and disciplinary area conferred to members of the target minority group; and the percentage change from the prior year in degrees conferred to the target minority group in the degree/disciplinary area. The data for this analysis are collected by the National Center for Education Statistics from all U.S. postsecondary institutions. The graphs accompanying this article show the distribution of master's and doctoral degrees conferred by proprietary, private nonprofit and public institutions among the Top 20 for non-minorities, total minorities and each minority group.
