*A report by Diverse Issues in Higher Education magazine's June 12 edition reveals that Florida A&M University in Tallahassee has the highest number of black graduates earning bachelor degrees.
The report ranked colleges by the number of students who graduate during a school year. For FAMU, that meant 1,256 graduates in the 2006-2007 year, reports tallahasse.com.
"They appear to be doing a pretty good job," said Toni Coleman, associate editor of the magazine. "That makes sense," she added. "They are the (largest) historically black university."
FAMU President James Ammons said the recognition "validates the valued role FAMU plays in American and global higher education."
"This announcement ... speaks volumes concerning FAMU's unique contributions to the nation and the international community at large," Ammons said.
