Race and Ethnicity
(U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents)

The United States Department of Education provides federal guidelines for maintaining, collecting, and presenting data on race and ethnicity. Michigan Ross is required to follow these standards which allow students to self-identify their ethnicity and race, with the option to select more than one race and/or ethnicity, for all federal reporting purposes. The racial and ethnic categories listed here reflect those included in our application process, per federal guidelines. U.S. race / ethnicity is shown as a percent of U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

  Federal Guidelines Multidimensional Reporting
American Indian or Alaska Native 0   1 1.6%
Asian American 15 24.2% 17 27.4%
Black or African American 0   1 1.6%
Hispanic or Latinx 1 1.6% 1 1.6%
White 40 64.5% 45 72.6%
Not Indicated 2 3.2% 2 3.2%
Two or More Races 4 6.5% n/a n/a

Federal Reporting Guidelines

The second and third columns reflect our student demographic data as reported based on federal government guidelines. Per these guidelines, all students who identify as Hispanic or Latinx and any other race are represented as Hispanic or Latinx only. Students who identify with more than one race are represented as Multi-Race only. The third column sums to 100% but may be slightly lower or higher due to rounding. 

Multidimensional Reporting

In the fourth and fifth columns, we share students' full racial and ethnic identities to more inclusively reflect the racial/ethnic groups with which they identify. As such, students with multi-racial/ethnic identities are represented in more than one row, meaning the fifth column adds to more than 100%.

Diversity & Inclusion

Michigan Ross students thrive in an inclusive environment where diverse voices are heard and valued. Diversity fuels success by inspiring new ways of thinking, expanding your ability to tackle issues from many angles, and by driving innovation.
