Oklahoma State University working to increase racial diversity

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma State University is taking steps to increase racial diversity at its Stillwater campus.

Of the estimated 20,000 students at OSU, about 88 percent are white, 7 percent are American Indian and about 3 percent are black.

Cornell Thomas -- vice president of institutional diversity at OSU -- says about 20 percent of the faculty are black.

Thomas and several other university chief diversity officers are meeting Sunday in Los Angeles for the first conference of a new organization called the National Association of Diversity Officers in Education.

The group will meet and exchange ideas on how to increase diversity on predominantly white campuses.
