Diversity percentages for US schools

Posted to Data Sources  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Based on 2014 estimates from the U.S. Department of Education, the Chronicle of Higher Education compiled a straightforward searchable and sortable table that shows the race percentages for more than 4,600 institutions.

FYI: The search function is basic, and you have to enter a school’s name to match as it is entered in the system. For example, a search for “Berkeley” only shows the schools that start with that but not University of California at Berkeley. And a search for “University of California” pulls up zero results, because it’s listed as “U. of California.”
