Black Students From Caribbean Nations at U.S. Colleges and Universities

Last week JBHE reported that more than 36,000 students from Africa were studying at colleges and universities in the United States. But not all black foreign students enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities are from Africa. In the 2005-06 academic year, there were 13,855 students from Caribbean nations attending college in the U.S. Undoubtedly, most of these students are black.

Jamaica sent more than 4,100 college students to study in the United States. Nearly 3,000 students from Trinidad and Tobago and more than 1,600 students from the Bahamas attended colleges and universities in the U.S. Haiti sent more than 1,000 students to study in U.S. universities.
