Every year the magazine Diverse Issues in Higher Education produces “Top 100 Degree Producers,” rankings of the institutions that confer the most degrees to minority students. The magazine analyzes data submitted by institutions to the U.S. Department of Education to rank the top degree producers by minority categories, by gender, by disciplines, and across disciplines. In July 2010, they published the Top 100 based on the data covering the 2008-09 academic year.

 Fielding Graduate University is consistently prominent in the Top 100 lists and this year was proud to have been ranked in seven categories:

  • Fielding’s rank was #18 for “Total Minority, Education,” a category in which the School of Educational Leadership & Change experienced an increase of 122.2% EdD graduates over the previous year.

  • Total Minority, All Disciplines Combined
