Minority Graduation Rates
August 12, 2010 7:54 AM Subscribe
Using its College Results Online database, The Education Trust has released two reports examining the black-white and Hispanic-white college graduation gap. The worst offenders? Wayne State University in Detroit, where fewer than one in ten African-American students graduate in six years, and CUNY Brooklyn College, where 19% less Hispanic students graduate on-time than whites.
At nearly two-thirds of the colleges and universities in the study, fewer than half the African-American students emerge with a degree. And though the vast majority of Latino students in the study entrust their futures to public colleges and universities, more than 60 percent of the institutions they attend graduate fewer than half their Latino students in six years.Earlier this year, Ed Trust also released two reports on what some colleges are doing to close the gap.
