Diversity Statistics


Traditionally Under-Represented Student Groups (TUSG) were used to report the data below. TUSG includes all races except for European/Middle Eastern/White and Not Reported.

If the student choose not to answer either question, they are considered unknown or not reported.

The workforce diversity data presented below utilizes the IPEDs Race/Ethnicity methodology where if an employee indicates Hispanic identity, or their Visa and Citizenship status indicates they are a Non-Resident Alien, those statuses take precedence over any race selection. If the employee chose not to answer either question, they are considered unknown or not reported.
