Oregon’s Public Universities See Big Increases in Hispanic, Multi-Racial Student Enrollment

The number of Latino and multi-racial students at Oregon’s public universities is more than double what it was seven years ago, according to an analysis of enrollment records by The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Though Oregon’s public universities collectively saw enrollment rise roughly 5 percent from 2010 to 2016, the lion’s share of that growth was fueled by significant increases in the number of minority students on campus. Those gains, particularly among Latino and multi-racial students, held through this academic year, even as all but two campuses posted slight declines in overall enrollment.
