The Top Producers of Native American Graduates

Article excerpt

Each year, Diverse: Issues In Higher Education publishes lists of the Top 100 producers of associate, bachelor's and graduate degrees awarded to minority students. This year, we continue with the expanded listings focusing on Native American students, in line with the Native American heritage focus of this edition of Diverse. These listings are based on research conducted by Dr. Victor M.H. Borden, a professor of educational leadership and policy studies at Indiana University Bloomington, and Dr. Rhonda V. Sharpe, visiting associate professor of economics at Bucknell University.

Data for this analysis are included within the completions survey of the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics' Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Set (IPEDS). This analysis is based on degrees conferred during the 2013-14 academic year. All colleges and universities must now ask students if they are Hispanic. Any U.S. citizen or permanent resident who responds "yes" to this question is categorized as Hispanic regardless of racial identification. Anyone who is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident is considered a "non-resident alien." All other individuals are categorized according to their answer to a second question in which they are presented with five standard racial classifications: American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian American, Black or African-American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and White and asked to "check all that apply." Anyone who checks off more than one category is placed in a new "two or more race" category.
