ATSU named a top producer of African American doctoral graduates

This past February, Diverse: Issues In Higher Education recognized A.T. Still University of Health Sciences (ATSU) as a top producer of doctoral health science degrees earned by African American students.

Founded in 1984, Diverse is a bi-weekly news magazine dedicated to covering matters of access, diversity, inclusion, and opportunity for all in higher education. Every year, Diverse publishes its top 100 degree producers for minority students, based on data gathered by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics for its Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).

In line with the celebration of Black History Month, Diverse chose to expand this year’s listing with an additional focus on African American students. Ranking at No. 25 in all combined doctoral disciplines, ATSU is the only health sciences university to have made the list, which is based on research conducted by Rhonda Vonshay Sharpe, founder and president of the Women’s Institute for Science, Equity and Race.

In 2023, Diverse also ranked ATSU among the top 100 degree producers for minority students in three health science specialties.
