"In a report on racial equity at public universities released Tuesday by the University of Southern California, the University of Michigan received an F grade in representation of Black students on campus"


While 17 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds in the state of Michigan are Black, Black students constitute only 4.4 percent of the University’s undergraduate student population. The Black graduation rate — for which the University received a C grade — is also 12.1 percent lower than the overall completion rate.

Black enrollment at the University is less than half the national average of 9.8 percent.
