The focus of this report is on the progress made in the representation of people of color within the Oregon University System (OUS). The report includes brief overviews of selected initiatives within OUS institutions that seek to enhance the representation of people of color on campuses. During the 5-year period from fall 1996 to fall 2001, the enrollment of students of color in the OUS increased from 7,720 to 9,446 (12.8% of the students enrolled). The number of degrees awarded to people of color also increased, and several OUS institutions received national recognition for students of color in specific racial and ethnic groups. In the 1996-1997 academic year, faculty of color represented 213 (7.3%) of ranked instructional faculty and 358 (7.4%) of all instructional faculty. These numbers have increased in the 5-year period, with faculty of color representing 9.1% of ranked institutional faculty and 8.2% of all instructional faculty. During the 2-year period from fall 1999 through fall 2001, the total representation of staff of color increased to 8.5%. Eleven appendixes contain tables of system data. (Contains 5 figures and 11 tables.) (SLD)
