San Diego State University Recognizes Pacific Islander Underrepresentation

San Diego State University is the latest school to win the Pacific Islander Access project's praise for recognizing that Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders are underrepresented in higher education.  Word came from this article in the San Diego Union-Tribune on on SDSU is narrowing the graduation gap between the general population and their underrepresented minority students.  To quote the article:

Underrepresented minorities are defined as African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders.

According to the 2010 Census, San Diego County has the fifth largest Pacific Islander population in the United States (trailing three Hawaii counties and LA). In addition, SDSU has the distinction of being one of the few universities with its own program (the SDSU Center for Pacific Studies) dedicated to studying the Pacific Islands and its people.


Here are links to previous posts we've written on universities that recognize that Pacific Islanders are underrepresented: UCLA, USC, and Sacramento State
