Minority enrollment on the rise at UVSC

Recently the Daily Herald ran a story talking about the state of minority populations in Utah's higher education institutions.

More minority students going to college (Daily Herald, August 4 2007)

The article says that only 9 percent of students in post-high school education are non-white. It goes on to point out that school's like UVSC are doing more to reach out to minority students interested in a college education.

And the recent numbers from the school's office of Institutional Research back up UVSC's increased focus on minority students. Since 2002 the school's percentage of non-white students has risen from just under 9 percent to almost 15 percent in 2006.
