Abstract

The Iowa College Student Aid Commission (Iowa College Aid) annual Student and Faculty Ethnic Diversity Report summarizes trends in representation by minority population groups among students, faculty, and state financial aid recipients at Iowa colleges and universities. The report is based on an annual survey of Iowa college and university officials. Findings of the 2021 report include: • In the fall of 2020, 38,998 minority students were enrolled at Iowa colleges and universities. • Enrollment of racial and ethnic minority students in Iowa’s colleges and universities has increased steadily since 1992, when the Ethnic Diversity Survey was first conducted. Between fall 1992 and fall 2020, enrollment of racial and ethnic minority students in Iowa’s colleges and universities more than tripled. • In the fall of 2020, racial and ethnic minorities represented 18.9% of enrollment in Iowa colleges and universities. Of those, 11.3% were Iowa residents. • Of Iowa-resident minority students attending college in Iowa during the previous academic year (2019-20), 6.7% were awarded an Iowa Tuition Grant, 1.9% Iowa Vocational-Technical Tuition Grant, or 1.5% All Iowa Opportunity Scholarship. For this report, minority students and faculty include those from the following population groups: Hispanic or Latino; American Indian or Alaska Native; Asian; Black or African American; Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander; two or more races/ethnicities.
