The New Minority On Campus? Men
Jon Marcus, The Hechinger Report/The Atlantic
Where men once went to college in proportions far higher than women—58 percent to 42 percent as recently as the 1970s—the ratio is now almost exactly reversed.
This fall, women will comprise more than 56 percent of students on campuses nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Some 2.2 million fewer men than women will be enrolled in college this year. And the trend shows no sign of abating.
