Ball State University added to growing list of universities that recognize Pacific Islander underrepresentation

We can now add Ball State University to the growing list of universities who are on the record recognizing that Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders are underrepresented in higher education, according to a recent article in the Star Press.

Here's the quote, from the second page of the story:

Under-represented minorities — which include Asian, biracial, black, Hispanic, Native American and Pacific Islander, but not foreign students — make up 12.5 percent of all undergraduates this fall, compared with only 6.9 percent in fall 2003.

Here are some (but not all) of the other universities who have reached the same conclusion:

  • University of Michigan-Ann Arbor: LINK
  • San Diego State University: LINK
  • Sacramento State University: LINK
