What is the definition of “Underrepresented Minority”?

FAEIS adopts the term “minority” as defined by § 365(3) of the Higher Education Act (HEA) (20 U.S.C. § 1067k(3)). This definition is applied to the concept of underrepresented minority as a suggested subsample based on ethnicity. Since representation varies across institution and program, ethnicity included as underrepresented can be customized on your reports. To maintain consistent reporting, these codes are included as a filter across the reports on the “Use FAEIS Data” page.
