California school’s business program and by the diversity of its student body And with family dotted along the East Coast he likes the thought of instead heading west to build his empireKamara is the type of student the University of Minnesota has struggled to attract Despite large numbers of black high school students in the metro area they are hard to find at the U or its four branches across the stateAfrican-American students account for 103 percent of all domestic college students in Minnesota but just 45 percent of those in the U system And while 47 percent of the state’s college students are Hispanic that number is just 28 percent at U schoolsThe U system is intent on changing that and demographic trends show it will have to make up ground quickly in order to make the U’s campuses reflective of Minnesota as a wholeOver the next several years there will be little growth in the number of high school graduates in the state according to a demographic report presented recently to the U’s Board of Regents And those graduates increasingly will be students of colorThe raw number of white college students in the state has fallen each year since 2009 And by 2023 the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education’s report said about 25 percent of the state’s high school graduates will be minorities — up from 15 percent in 2007“We understand that the landscape across the state is changing and we need to double our efforts” to recruit a diverse class of students said Keyana Scales the U’s freshman recruitment directorThe game plan involves recruiting in high schools with lots of students of color both inside and outside Minnesota and building an academic program that will attract those studentsUniversity of Minnesota-Duluth Vice Chancellor Andrea Schokker said UMD has a new tribal administration and governance program; the Twin Cities campus has new bachelor certificates in global health; and the Crookston campus is planning new degrees in agricultural education international business and English with a focus on multicultural literature UM-Morris is looking to get more of its American Indian students into science technology engineering and math fields At the U’s recruitment office a reconfiguration has given it a stronger presence in metro high schools It was among a handful of area colleges participating in a recent after-school college application workshop at St Paul’s Harding High School where 91 percent of all students last year were of color Of the 50 or so students at the event the overwhelming majority were applying to less selective colleges in the area than the UThe U’s fairly high admission standards are a barrier for many metro students Like most colleges the U requires applicants to submit an ACT or SAT score which helps predict a student’s chance of succeeding in college And black Minnesota students averaged a score of 179 out of 36 on the ACT last year behind the 237 average for white studentsWith an ACT score of 18 Javaris Bradford couldn’t get into the U after graduating from high school in Milwaukee But after a strong freshman year at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay he transferred to the Twin Cities campus where he is a junior sociology major“Technically I shouldn’t even be here” he said “or at least I shouldn’t be doing well”Most of Minnesota’s minority teens don’t even take the ACT A white high school graduate in 2013 was twice as likely as a black graduate to have taken the test That changes this year as the state for the first time will cover the testing fees as it requires all high school juniors to take the ACTBut that doesn’t necessarily mean students of color will be well prepared for the test“They’re competing against kids who study for the ACT every day since eighth grade” said Ralph Alexander director of Harding’s College and Career CenterAlexander said colleges’ minimum ACT scores for admission create a disadvantage for the students at Harding where 85 percent qualify for government-subsidized lunches The staff there have to be intentional about getting kids to think about and plan for college Besides poverty and the challenge of learning English many metro students lack the transportation to make college visits the money to pay for higher education and often parents who can help navigate the system“Our students get beat at every corner” Alexander saidCollege Possible a national nonprofit with a strong presence in the Twin Cities helps teens apply for schools find scholarships and loans and prepare for the ACT Executive director Sara Dziuk said that just figuring out how to get into college is a significant barrier for those whose parents didn’t go to college“They likely have supportive parents or family members who live with them … but not necessarily anyone who knows how to navigate the process” she saidDziuk said high-achieving students of color tend to aim low rather than applying to more selective colleges — and that’s especially troubling because those students perform better when they’re matched with a more challenging schoolWhile recruiting students close to home remains the priority the U has looked to draw from other states too especially places that can improve the system’s diversity profileRachelle Hernandez admissions director for the U said they’ve been recruiting in the Chicago area for about 10 years and three years ago placed a regional recruiter in San Diego Illinois and California now are the third- and fourth-most common states of residence for U students behind Minnesota and WisconsinScales the recruiting director said that once students agree to a campus visit the U tries to make them feel like they will belong For black prospective students that could mean visits with one of the five active black student groups on campus“A lot of it has to do with fit” she said and making sure students can “see themselves on campus”Bradford the student from Milwaukee said he picked the U because he wanted to attend a top-tier school and was impressed by the feel of the place during a campus visit He said he’s comfortable being the only black person in class so he didn’t worry about the U’s demographics“I knew what I was getting into” he said “I just chose to embrace it”What he found was a university that can be at once suspicious of and welcoming to black students He says he sometimes gets followed while shopping at the Walgreens on campus and he said murals outside the offices of the minority student associations were painted over because they made people uncomfortableBut he’s noticed people going out of their way to include students of color When he asked a professor if he could help out as a research assistant last summer he was the only undergraduate chosen for the project And his sloppy audition for a poetry event on campus didn’t stop him from being invited to perform“People can’t tell you no quite frankly” Bradford said Some might be genuinely excited to help an underrepresented student he said while others are inclusive out of fear of looking racist “I know that and I see that so I use it to my advantage”
