1 All U.S. Race/Ethnicity data is shown as a percentage of U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents (n=201).

3 Students who identify as American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Other Pacific Islander, Black/African American or Hispanic/Latinx (n=36).
4 Federal Guidelines report students who identify with more than one race or ethnicity under a single category.  Students who identify as Hispanic/Latinx and any other race are represented as Hispanic/Latinx only.  Students who identify with more than one race are represented as Multi-race only.
5 Multi-Dimensional reporting allows for students who identify with more than one race or ethnicity to be represented in each category with which they identify.  As a result, the total may exceed 100%.

Examples:

  • A student who identifies as Hispanic/Latinx and Black/African American is represented only as Hispanic/Latinx under the Federal Guidelines and as both Hispanic/Latinx and Black/African American under Multi-Dimensional Reporting.  This student is included as both a U.S. Student of Color and a U.S. Underrepresented Student of Color.

  • A student who identifies as Black/African American and White is represented as Multi-Race under the Federal Guidelines and as both Black/African American and White under Multi-Dimensional Reporting.  This student is included as both a U.S. Student of Color and a U.S. Underrepresented Student of Color.

  • A student who identifies as Asian American and White is represented as Multi-Race under the Federal Guidelines and as both Asian American and White under Multi-Dimensional Reporting.  This student is included as a U.S. Student of Color but not a U.S. Underrepresented Student of Color.
