Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

US race/ethnicity enrollment is shown as a percent of US citizens and permanent residents within the class. Chicago Booth adheres to federal guidelines for maintaining, collecting, and presenting data on race and ethnicity as provided by The Department of the Interior via the Office of Civil Rights. These standards allow students to self-identify their ethnicity and race, with the option to select more than one race and/or ethnicity. The racial and ethnic categories listed here reflect those included in our application. Multi-Dimensional Reporting depicts students’ full racial and ethnic identities to more inclusively reflect the racial/ethnic groups they identify with beyond a grouping of “Multi-Race,” within the Federal Guidelines. This results in an aggregate of more than 100 percent.
