Nationwide, from 2005 to 2010, 1.6 minority (non-white) students enrolled in college for every additional white student who enrolled. In the SREB region that meant 700,312 more minority college students and 411,915 more white college students. Increases in minority student enrollment accounted for almost two-thirds of the total growth in college enrollment over the period.
