University of Minnesota officials are expressing concern over the declining number of African-Americans attending graduate school there.
To address the decline, university leaders have boosted recruitment and retention efforts to increase the number of blacks who earn masters, doctoral and professional degrees.
But they say theyre at a loss to explain why fewer blacks are studying there.
That worries us, said Sally Kohlstedt, acting vice provost and dean of graduate education.Across the country, there has been a drop in African-Americans. But we seem to be dropping even more rapidly than at the national level. And that raises a whole lot of questions.

Maybe Bob could hold an open house in his bunker. Be afraid Bob. Especially of people that don't look like you.
