CHANGES TO RACE/ETHNICITY COLLECTION AND REPORTING


Higher education institutions must change the way they 1) collect race/ethnicity data, and 2) report aggregate data to the U.S. Department of Education. The changes are necessary for the USDOE to implement the office of Management and Budget's (OMB) 1997 Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity.
