National diversity magazine lauds number of bachelor's degree awarded

UNT has been ranked among top colleges that awarded the most bachelor’s degrees to African Americans in the 2009-10 academic year, by Diverse Issues in Higher Education magazine.     

Diverse, which has kept track of the number of bachelor’s degrees awarded to students of color for the past 20 years, recently released a list of the nation’s 100 colleges that conferred the most bachelor’s degrees to African Americans in the 2009-10 academic year. These are the most recent statistics available.

UNT is ranked among the top 20 colleges and universities on the list, and the top university in Texas for graduating the most African American college students. Other Texas universities listed are Texas Southern University, Texas Woman’s University and the University of Houston.

Gilda Garcia, vp, equity and diversityNationwide statistics suggest that minority representation among bachelor’s degree recipients has increased over the past several years, a trend which is evident at UNT had a 6 percent increase in the number of bachelor’s degrees conferred to African Americans from 2008 to 2010.

Gilda Garcia, vice president for institutional equity and diversity, said UNT’s recognition in Diverse “could only have positive effects for the university and the community, as it renews our dedication to an inclusive environment. We  are excited that our efforts in diversity are helping to shape men and women from a wide variety of backgrounds that are not only getting recognized, but improving, as statistics show.”

Diverse also classified UNT among the top 100 institutions that graduate the most American Indian, Asian and Hispanic undergraduate students.

Diverse magazine’s mission is to provide information that is honest, thorough and balanced and to serve as agents of change by generating public policies that resolve inequities that still exist today.
