With 5 minority—majority institutions, and a collective minority student headcount (42%) that is well above the estimated minority population in Virginia (37%), we know our colleges are institutions of choice for minority students throughout the state. We also strive to be a model for diversity and inclusion and become institutions of choice for faculty, staff and leadership.
