Number Of Non-Whites In NYC Colleges Told
—The Board of Higher Education last week revealed that pupils identified as "Negro and Puerto Rican" now make up from 7.4 to 10 per cent of the enrollment in the City University of New York.

Four senior, colleges, City, Hunter, Brooklyn and Queens; and three two - year colleges, Staten Island. Bronx and Queensboro, comprise the City University System.

Estimates given by the board put the Negro - Puerto Rican strength at between 6,300 and 8,600, which, according to Board Chairman Gustave G. Rosenberg "is undoubtedly more than any other university in the country."
