FAMU Ranked No.1 Producer of Black Grads

Graduates at Florida A&M University

Florida A&M was recently ranked the No. 1 producer of black bachelor degree holders in a report by Diverse Issues in Higher Education magazine's June 12 edition.

The report ranked the university solely by the number of students who graduate during a school year. For FAMU, that meant 1,256 graduates in the 2006-2007 year.

"They appear to be doing a pretty good job," said Toni Coleman, associate editor of the magazine.

She said FAMU's distinction means the university produces "the most degrees (to) African Americans.

"That makes sense," she said. "They are the (largest) historically black university."

FAMU President James Ammons said the recognition "validates the valued role FAMU plays in American and global higher education." source
