Diversity Matters

UIC is currently the most diverse graduate student body among America’s 50 leading research universities. 14.5% of the Graduate College student body is African American, Latino or Native American. In addition to underrepresented minority students, 7.1% of UIC’s graduate students are Asian American.  Its “majority” population (which annually constitutes barely 50% of the graduate student body) is itself highly diverse in terms of ethnic and socioeconomic background.  International students constitute about a quarter of total graduate students.
