Diversity at 16 Institutions Led by African-American Chief Executives, 2014


At seven of the 16 institutions led by black presidents or chancellors for six years or more, the percentage increase in enrollment of black students during their tenure was at least 50 percentage points higher than it was at comparable groups of institutions. Enrollment of African-Americans more than doubled at five of the institutions, and enrollment of underrepresented minorities more than doubled at 10. At only a few of the 16 institutions did the diversity of faculty and managers exceed or approach the diversity of the student body.
