Aggregate undergraduate enrollment in agriculture campus curricula has generally been declining throughout the last decade, although there have been increases reported in the areas of agricultural economics/business (61% increase from 1975-1984, Allen, et al). Graduate programs have reportedly remained fairly constant in enrollment during the 1980's for agricultural curricula at four-year institutions. Of these students in graduate and undergraduate programs. fewer than 10% of the total enrollment in the respective categories are black minority students, and the percentages are declining further. Although the percentages are disproportionately low for the demographic composition of the college-age populace, the graduate school enrollment is skewed the most.
