Stritch among national leaders in growth of underrepresented minority students

December 1, 2018

A November 11, 2018, list published by the Chronicle of Higher Education indicated that Cardinal Stritch University's growth of underrepresented minority students was sixth highest among private nonprofit doctoral institutions in the United States from 2010 to 2016. 

In 2010, 24.5% of Stritch students were in underrepresented categories, which includes American Indians and Alaska Natives, blacks, and Hispanics, all of whom have been traditionally underrepresented in higher education. In 2016, that percentage grew to 33.9%.

Diversity is celebrated at Cardinal Stritch University. We have a long history of creating opportunities to educate and train members of our community to become more culturally competent. We strive to engage members in meaningful dialogue and experiences that align with our Catholic Franciscan values and help to create a welcoming and inclusive university community. Programs have been developed and implemented to facilitate the successful matriculation of students from underrepresented and marginalized communities.
