Diverse: Issues In Higher Education Names Top 100 Minority Degree Producers
FAIRFAX, Va. — In its October 13, 2022 edition Diverse: Issues In Higher Education magazine identifies the Top 100 minority degree producers among American undergraduate and graduate institutions of higher education.
The data, compiled exclusively for Diverse by Rhonda V. Sharpe, Ph.D., founder and president of the Women’s Institute for Science, Equity and Race, is the only national report on the ability of U.S. colleges and universities to award degrees to African American, Hispanic, Asian American and Native American students.
The Diverse Top 100 report is the only national analysis to use the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education (preliminary 2020-2021 academic year). Using these statistics Dr. Sharpe has created rankings in the total number of degrees awarded at every American institution of higher education, as well as specific figures in major fields of study and disciplines. This marks the 31st consecutive year that Diverse (formerly Black Issues In Higher Education) has produced this original research.
Since 1984, Diverse: Issues In Higher Education magazine has been the nation’s premier publication covering the issues pertaining to underrepresented groups in American higher education. Reaching more than 200,000 readers biweekly in print and daily online, Diverse has been lauded for its in-depth news coverage, provocative commentary, insightful special reports and original research.
