WSU President Kirk Schulz said during an Honors town hall on Monday that the university has increased campus diversity over the past four to five years and is working to continue this trend.
Schulz began the presentation with a slide that showed the increase in the total number of students at WSU and the changes in racial demographics over these years.
“We look at the demographic of ethnicity of WSU system wide now,” he said. “If we look at WSU in the last decade, we really did a nice job at recruiting and maintaining a diverse student body.”
