Beginning 2009 changes in IPEDS definition of race and ethnicity were implemented, and many students/faculty/staff who may have listed themselves as African American in the earlier federal collection/reporting methodology are now being counted in the Hispanic or Multi-Race categories. This almost certainly accounts for some of the decline in the numbers of African American students/faculty/staff between 2009 to the present.
