A new report says the percentages of Hispanic and black students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln rose between fall 2004, when the university removed consideration of race as an admissions factor, and fall 2010, a year after the state implemented a ban on affirmative action.

A Century Foundation report released Wednesday says that over those years, the percentage of Hispanic students increased to 4 percent and the percentage of black students rose to 2.7 percent of overall enrollment.

Nebraska is one of seven states with a ban on racial and gender preferences in public admissions and hiring decisions.
