Description

This paper examines the factors that affect college graduation rates of minority students. We control for whether an institution is private or public, the institutions’ admission rates, institutional expenditures, and the percentage of the institutions’ faculty that are minorities. We find that institutions with higher admissions rates have higher minority graduation rates, that institutions with a higher percentage of faculty who are minorities have lower minority graduation rates, and that institutions with higher instructional expenditures have lower minority graduation rates.
