More than half of Harvard University's next student intake will not be white, for the first time in its 380-year history, official figures show.
The varsity, which has educated more US presidents than any other, will take 50.8% of its freshmen from minority groups.
That compares to 47.3% last year.
Asian Americans make up 22.2%, followed by African Americans at 14.6%, Hispanic or Latino students at 11.6%, and Native American or Pacific Islanders at 2.5%.
The milestone figures come just days after Harvard was drawn into a row over affirmative action between the US justice department and the New York Times.
