For several years now, Diverse: Issues In Higher Education has produced the Top 100 Degree Producers
rankings of the institutions that confer the most degrees to minority students.
Using the links below, you can generate rankings according to the total number of degrees awarded to
minority students across all disciplines as well as in specific disciplines.
Each list provides the total for the previous year (2010-11), followed by the most current year (2011-12) counts
for males, females and total. The final two columns show two percentages. The first percentage indicates
how the number of the minority category degree recipients compares with all degree recipients at that
institution within that discipline. The second percentage column indicates the percentage change
in that minority groups’ number of graduates at that institution from the previous year.
The lists containing total degrees for each and all minority groups include 100 institutions. The lists for
specific disciplines contain typically, but not always, 50 institutions each. A given list may have slightly fewer
or more institutions because of ties in the rankings.
Use the links below to discover the institutions that confer the most degrees to students of color. Search by
institution name, state, discipline or race/ethnicity of graduates. To generate the Top 100 ranking for all minorities combined, choose “Total Minority” option under the Race drop-down menu and choose “All Disciplines Combined” from the Major drop-down menu.
