DETROIT (AP) -- Graduation rates vary widely at Michigan's 15 public universities, with especially large differences for African American students.
A Detroit Free Press review of federal data shows the overall graduation rate at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor at 89 percent, while Lake Superior State's rate is 26 percent.
The figures are for first-time students in 2003 who graduated within six years.
Rates for black students range from 79 percent at Michigan-Ann Arbor to 9 percent at Wayne State University.
Lou Glazer heads the Ann Arbor-based think tank Michigan Future. He says universities have moral and economic incentives to reduce dropouts.
