Reports Highlight Colleges Where Minority Success Rates Have Soared

By Jennifer González

Educational attainment levels for young Americans in minority groups still lag, but a number of institutions are making significant progress toward improving that picture by increasing the number of black and Hispanic students they graduate, according to a pair of new reports from the Education Trust.

The shift is significant because students of color are a growing demographic group, and more of them need to graduate in order for the nation to reach its college-completion goals, the advocacy group says. Graduating also means a fighting chance at decent employment, given that many future jobs will require a postsecondary degree.

The two reports, based on a study called “Advancing to Completion,” list Virginia Commonwealth University, Texas Tech University, and the State University of New York at Stony Brook among the institutions that had significantly increased graduation rates and closed attainment gaps among their minority-student populations.
