IU is seeking to become more diverse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana University hired a new leader in the campus diversity office to help reach the school's goal of recruiting minority students.

African-American students have accounted for just 4 percent of the student body since 1975 despite a push in 2007 to double minority students by this fall.

IU president Michael McRobbie says other IU campuses have increased enrollment among minorities, but the Bloomington campus has not seen that same increase.

University officials hired an associate vice president for campus diversity to improve minority relations in Bloomington.
