STUDENT OPPORTUNITY: Underrepresented Minority Enrollment as Percentage of Total Enrollment

The underrepresented minority enrollment KPI includes African-American, Hispanic and Native American students, but not Asians. This measure focuses on those racial and ethnic minority groups that have historically not been employed in a variety of occupations in proportion to the population.

As can be seen in the trend chart, UNO increased its share of underrepresented minority enrollment from 8.4 percent in 2004 to 9.4 percent in 2009. In 2010 the proportion stood at 11.9 percent before growing to 13.4 in 2011. Overall, the underrepresented minority proportion of total UNO enrollment grew by 59.5 percent.
