More than two-thirds of four-year, public colleges and universities have increased graduation rates in the last 10 years — not only overall (5.3 percentage points), but for underrepresented students as well (6.3 percentage points). Among underrepresented students, gains were greatest for Latinos (7.4 percentage points) and smallest for black students (4.4 points). Native students saw an increase of 6.4 points. https://edtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/TheRisingTide_120115.pdf
