Knocking at the College Door
A new report, Knocking on the College Door, a publication of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, shows that students of color will account for almost half of public high school graduates by 2020. You can view the report and an interactive map of the percentage of students of color among high school graduates by state at the link above.
The map shows that students of color will make up 36% of high school grads in Colorado by 2020. In the other top states for Colorado College recruiting, the numbers are also growing:
California – 71% Massachusetts – 31% Illinois – 42% Texas – 70%
Clearly, continuing to build a diverse and inclusive campus will be key to Colorado College’s academic excellence in the coming decade.
