Student Statistics

Below is a compilation of data that show Graduate Center gender and race/ethnicity and age statistics. While incomplete, it gives a sense of the diversity of the GC’s doctoral students. Additionally, data from our most recent Doctoral Student Experience Survey (Spring 2014) indicate that 14% of GC doctoral students identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender and that 25% of GC doctoral students’ parents/guardians did not graduate from college. The data help to illustrate that there is a diverse group of students enrolled at the Graduate Center and that progress has been made, but that there is more we can and must do to increase the diversity of our community.

Notes: These charts were created by the Office of Communications and Marketing and data were provided by the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness. Data on race/ethnicity and gender are collected only on the GC application and not every applicant chooses to provide them. Race/ethnicity percentages are calculated for U.S. citizens and permanent residents with known ethnicity data. Starting in 2010, both the collection and reporting format for race/ethnicity data changed due to a federal mandate, and this may impact interpretation of data over time. In brief, starting in 2010, any respondent who identifies as Hispanic is categorized as Hispanic, regardless of whether he/she selects any other racial category. U.S. citizens/permanent residents who do not identify as Hispanic, but identify with more than one racial category are categorized as “two or more races.”
