Bachelor’s degrees awarded annually to African-American and Hispanic students provides a sense of student diversity based on the race/ethnicity of the students. This metric is important to the State University System because increasing the educational attainment for all of Florida’s citizens is a key to the State’s future workforce.

Bachelor’s Degrees Awarded to Hispanic and African-American Students

As Florida is one of the most diverse states in the nation, the Board of Governors recognizes and embraces its important role in meeting the educational and economic needs of all Florida students.  The Board increased its 2025 Strategic Plan goal of bachelor’s degrees awarded to African-American and Hispanic students from 35% to 40% in 2014, then again to 46% in 2019.

This metric is included in the Board’s Accountability Plan, 2025 Strategic Plan, as well as Florida Gulf Coast University and University of Central Florida Board of Trustee Choice Performance-Based Funding (PBF) Metric.
