Minorities in Higher Education: 24th Status Report - PDF
This 2010 edition analyzes the latest racial/ethnic and gender trends in high school completion, college enrollment, persistence, degree completion, faculty, administrators, and presidents. A key finding is that while postsecondary educational attainment continues to flat-line in the United States, attainment rates have dipped for the youngest group (aged 25 to 34). Produced with support from the GE Foundation, this edition also features an in-depth analysis of Hispanics. As immigrants, young adult Hispanics experience a host of barriers to further education. The report calls for a more realistic understanding of the implications of the Hispanic population on the nation’s educational and economic competitiveness.
