Study: Marshall graduates more African-Americans

leave a comment »


A new study shows African-American students at Marshall University graduate at a higher rate than other schools around the country.

The report by the Education Trust, a Washington, D.C.-based group, says African-American students graduate from Marshall at the same rate as white students. The report is based on six years of information from hundreds of private and public universities.

Marshall’s Maurice Cooley says it’s no surprise the school is doing better. Cooley tells The Herald-Dispatch that Marshall is committed to providing African-American students with a supportive environment. Cooley directs Marshall’s Center for African-American Students’ Programs.

Marshall has about 800 African-American students.
