Title

Chart "Racial Composition of Student Bodies: University of Richmond"

Description

This is a revised chart of the actual (1969-1970) and the estimated (1970-1971) racial composition of various student bodies at the University of Richmond. It lists the racial composition of the following schools: Richmond College, Westhampton College, University College (Day and Evening Divisions), Graduate School, School of Business Administration, The T.C. Williams School of Law, and the Summer School. The minority groups it lists are: “American Indian, ‘Negro,’ ‘Oriental,’ Spanish Surnamed American.” In every school, the actual and estimated number of each minority is under ten, with some even being zero for both actual and estimated. The “Negro” category is the highest, with the highest actual number being four students in Westhampton College and the highest estimated number being eight in the Summer School, which was for part time students. It also lists the actual and estimated amounts of other, or white, students at each of the schools. While the highest actual number of white students is 1379 in Richmond College, the highest estimated number is 1192, also in Richmond College.
