Underrepresented Students Information
At the UI College of Public Health, about 13 percent of the college's student body identify as African American or Black, American Indian or Native Alaskan, Asian American, Hispanic/Latino(a), Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, or two or more races. An additional 12 percent are from countries other than the United States. One of the college's most important institutional goals is continuing to enhance the diversity of its student body.
