50 Years of Students
Like the nation overall, not-for-profit, baccalaureate-granting colleges have become considerably more diverse in the past 50 years. In 1971, 10 percent of freshmen were nonwhite. By 2015, that figure had grown to 43 percent.
In the past five years, college freshmen have become, for the first time, more diverse than the nation as a whole. The two drivers for this are the greater diversity of younger generations and a greater focus by colleges on developing diverse enrollments.
