The number of San Francisco State’s undergraduate degrees given to Latino and Mexican students have steadily increased in the last 10 years, from 1997/98 to 2007/08. The chart showed that at first the number of undergrad degrees given to Latino and Mexican students would decrease then go back up again. Unlike the “up and down” effect in the late 90s, during the 2000-2001 school year the amount of degrees granted became more consistent and continued rise.
San Francisco’s enrollment data by ethnicity has also shown a steady increase in enrollment of Latino and Mexican undergrad students from 2006 to 2010. Based on the chart and enrollment data, one can conclude that the number of Latino and Mexican students receiving baccalaureate degrees from SF State may continue to increase or slowly decline.
The chart can make one ask the following: How and why did the number of undergrad degrees given to Latino and Mexican students increase after the late 90s? Will the number continue to rise or drop after 2011?
