Racial and Gender Composition

The university composition visualization displays the racial and gender composition by degree level. The tool allows the user to examine the gender and racial makeup by school and department, in addition to new versus returning students for a particularly year. You can hover over the gender pie charts or the race/ ethnicity bar graphs to see the percent and number of students of a particular gender or race.

The data is a snapshot taken as of the AU census, which is at the end of the fifth week of classes. The most recent data is of the September 29, 2018.

NOTE: If you choose a combination of filters that produces a total number of students of five or less, no visualizations will appear.
