Harvard’s incoming class is majority minority for first time in history black history education harvard university

For the first time in history, Harvard‘s incoming class of students is majority minority.

In 380 years of existence, Harvard has never had a class come in like this, but the class of 2021 is 50.8 percent minority, including African-Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, Asian-Americans, Native Americans or Pacific Islanders, according to the Boston Globe.

“To become leaders in our diverse society, students must have the ability to work with people from different backgrounds, life experiences and perspectives,” Harvard spokeswoman Rachael Dane said in the statement. “Harvard remains committed to enrolling diverse classes of students.”

Last year, minority students made up 47.3 percent of incoming students.

This is a huge milestone for a university and an Ivy League system that has struggled with diversity and hopefully marks the beginning of a trend of more diversity in higher education.

Don't celebrate too fast. This minority group is made up white women too as they are counted as minorities as well.

This is great news. Going to a "ivy" puts you on a path both academically and personally. The students who attend the ivys will be tomorrow's Presidents,CEO, prime minister's etc. A Harvard degree.carries a lot of weight.
