Identifying Additional Layers of Diversity at Public Urban Universities by Using Data From the 2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study
AbstractThis paper examines additional layers of cultural diversity beyond the diversity usually measured by the standard racial/ethnic reporting categories for higher education institutions by examining immigration status and language usage variables. It uses data from the 2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS: 2000) to compare the populations of public, large city (populations greater than 250,000) higher education institutions to those of public four-year institutions in other locales. Results are reported for U.S. residents only.
