University of Colorado Seeks to Increase Student Diversity

The University of Colorado has hired Daniel Graham, a tight end for the National Football League’s Denver Broncos, as a minority student recruiter. Graham recently signed autographs and talked to 550 students at a college fair about the advantages of attending the University of Colorado.

This year there are 403 African-American students on the Boulder campus. They make up 1.6 percent of the undergraduate student body. Blacks are about 4 percent of the population in the state of Colorado.
