UNM Working To Increase Black Student Enrollment

ALBUQUERQUE N.M. — The University of New Mexico has hired a recruiter to bring more Black students to the university system.

KOAT-TV report that UNM recruiter Jamila Clayton said this week she is working to get more African American students interested UNM amid low black enrollment numbers.

University shows show that Black students make up less than 3 percent of the student body.

Around 38 percent of the school’s 32,000 or so students are Latino while 40 percent are white.

Clayton says she has visited Albuquerque and Rio Rancho and intends to visit soon Alamogordo, Hobbs, Roswell and Carlsbad.
