“At AIU Online, providing a high quality education" that is accessible to a culturally-diverse and geographically-dispersed student body has always been our priority,” said Dr. George Miller, Chief Executive Officer of American InterContinental University. “We are proud of the fact that Diverse Issues in Higher Education recognizes that AIU successfully serves students who are traditionally underrepresented in academia. AIU Online provides access to a flexible education and an opportunity for students to improve their lives by attending university courses on their own schedules, and without regard to geographic obstacles.”
The Diverse Issues in Higher Education report recognizes institutions where minority students earn undergraduate and graduate degrees across all academic disciplines as well as in specific disciplines. Data for the yearly report is provided by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).
