By 2025 Whites May Become Minorities on College Campuses

Hispanic Link, news, Arlinda Arriaga Posted: Jul 25, 2009

Before 2025, students of color will outnumber whites on U.S. college campuses for the first time, a new report projects. By 2021, white students will make up barely 52 percent of the nations college student population and two or three years later, theyll be in the minority, Chronicle Research Services calculates. Its study, designed to help higher education institutions plan ahead, measures the ethnic and racial makeup of current high-school graduating classes plus factors such as likely population growth, refined recruitment, pedagogical changes and overall accessibility. In 2021, annual Hispanic student enrollment is projected to increase over 2009 enrollment by 276,000 and for Asian/Pacific Islanders by 79,000, while dropping by 237,000 for white students and 44,000 for black students.
