*TOTAL excludes 44 respondents who did not select a race/ethnic category: 37 who ONLY gave a written comment on the two-part Race/Ethnicity item and 7 who ONLY said "Not a US Citizen."

Note: Numbers in cells are NOT mutually exclusive. For example, of the TOTAL 147 students who checked "Black or African American" on the survey--only about half (n=76, 52%) are represented in ONLY ONE cell and column. The  other half of Black respondents appear in one or more additional racial/ethnic categories (columns). See tables of column and row percents below for further details.

Similarly, 90% of whites also selected ONLY ONE category, however, smaller proportions of the other racial/ethnic groups selected only one category. Almost one-third of Hispanics (31%) selected ONLY the Hispanic ethnicity category and no additional race category.
