Description

This graph shows the increase in the minority population of undergraduates at the University of Illinois since the creation of Project 500. The enrollment increases steadily throughout the 1970s and 80s. The biggest increase comes in the Asian American demographic, most likely due to the diasporic movement of Asian Americans from the West Coast to the Midwest. The Latino population has been steadily increasing most likely due to immigration. As a whole, however, the minority population has leveled off over the last two decades. The African American community at the University of Illinois has actually begun to shrink relative to the size of the University. No one is quite sure why this is, only that it could be an issue in the future and could call for action at a later point.
